CIENIE / SHADOWS, reż./dir.: Paulina Grondal, prod.: ASP Kraków, dyplom licencjacki animacja/Bachelor of Fine Arts with major in animation, Polska/Poland, 2013, 6’54’’, anim.

Shadows are secondary creations. They are not real, they do not provide us with unquestionable portrait of reality. They suggest some events or shapes but at the same time that may be illusive or they may result from accidental coincidence of forms. Shadows ponder upon a subjective, entirely personal way of interpretation of the facts surrounding us and assigning a meaning to them. The story presented in Shadows mirrors actual events. But because it is just their reflection, the story does not provide a straight answer to what has really happened.
