How often do we say that something „is the end of the world”? How many world’s ends have we had? It is said that the end of the world is a movable feast. The film The End of the World presents, in short, rapidly following scenes, different views on the end of the world issue; prophecies, fear, sometimes indifference and absurd which all refer to pop cultural chaos ever present in media. The film shows the end from many perspectives – social, cultural and personal; a rapid montage of short scenes makes each viewer notice something different.

GENEZA / GENESIS, reż./dir.: Kamil Kukla, prod.: ASP Kraków, dyplom magisterski animacja/Master of Fine Arts with major in animation, Polska/Poland, 2013, 6’27’’, anim.

My film Genesis is rooted in my interest in the creative process – it illustrates a sequence of form creating stages starting with mechanical traces of a tool, through abstract information buzz till final shaping of a finished object. My film relates both to the creation of artifacts and to the development of a live organism through an ontogenesis process. The said process which starts at the level of micro molecules consists in multiplying of cells at exponential pace and results in
setting a ready individual in motion.

ZABICIE CIOTKI / KILLING AUNTIE, scen./sc., reż./dir.: Mateusz Głowacki, zdj./ph.: Kacper Sędzielewski, wyst./cast: Marek Kossakowski, Ewa Kolasińska, Aleksandra Pisula, Maciej Ferlak, prod.: WRiTV, dyplom magisterski reżyserski/Master of Fine Arts with major film directing, Polska/Poland, 2013, 30’14’’, fab. / fic.

„There was no doubt that auntie was dead. She did not move, a thin trickle of blood was running out of nowhere as there were no visible wounds. I took her under her arms and turned her over, face up. There was no doubt she was dead. She is dead – I murmured – Dead, dead, dead…”
Killing auntie is a film about a fight with one’s own demons and is based on an unfinished novel by Andrzej Bursa from 1957.
