Żubr Pompik odc. Do góry nogami / Pompik episode: Upside down / Żubr Pompik odc. Do góry nogami

Description:
Somewhere deep in the wild green forest there lives Pompik the bison. Actually one should call him a little bison, since he is much smaller than any other bison, not to mention that he is not as strong and agile as his peers. He is not very much into traditional bison pastimes such as horn pushing or scrimmage in the bushes, too. However, he has other interests – he is the most curious of all the animals living in the forest. There is no mystery which Pompik would not be able to solve, thanks to his sense of observation, patience and inquisitiveness.

Nowy dzień / A new day / Nowy dzień

Description:
Do we live our life to the fullest or do we merely exist? Are we able to create, or solely to be present? A movie about the life of a man, stuck in patterns, in inactive activity, fenced in by the passing days, which are only meaningless replays of the previous ones. Wake-up, a cup of coffee, a cigarette, a tram to work, work, a cigarette, a pub, comeback, wake-up…

Bernard / Bernard

Description:
A short story about loneliness, maladjustment and the desperate need of closeness, set in a severe winter landscape.

Refleksy / Reflections / Refleksy

Description:
The animation presents objects whose nature is conventional – it shows the coincidence which rules over people’s lives. As a result of its owner’s death, a simple object becomes a property of his relatives and therefore their most valuable heirloom and a reflex of a life of the deceased. Homogenous dark red colour of plasticine reminds of the colour of blood associated with both life and death. Visible fingerprints pose as clear references to the sense of touch by means of which we mark the objects we posses.

TeBelgeza / The TeBelgeza / TeBelgeza

Description:
TeBelgeza is a dance of freedom, a freedom to transform oneself continuosly and give birth to male and female elements which penetrate each other endlessly. The film is a half-abstract time-lapse choreography improvised by painting with ink on a carbon paper, a performance of transition in which there is no one proper way but full acceptance of expression and a cosmos of possibilities instead.

Forma Naturalna / Natural Form / Forma Naturalna

Description:
Blackness. A line divides itself into threads vibrating with sound. Similarly to the creation of the world, the abstract – nothingness- shapes itself into a form. Mountains, sand, a desert. A cell, as if an eye, is shifting above the Earth. Thickness of leaves. A constellation of planets and stars, out of which fish, birds and mammals were created. A life coming out of the centre, like a kaleidoscope. Natural forms juxtaposed with electronics, illustrating a music piece by Damian Czajka. A Darwinian videoclip and an experiment in one.
