Looking After the Family
For the past few years, the Polish documentary is undergoing some changes, where its filmmakers starting to shift their focus from political issues to family issues. Seven Polish films are screened in order to explore the possibilities of discussing family as a theme in relation to greater, more significant social context. In these seven films, the involvement of the filmmakers whether technical or story-related is a important thing to note. The audience is not asked to think of the reality projected on screen, but rather to feel what is seen. Starting from the ups and downs of complicated child-father relations, the dilemma and conflict between faith and technology that hasn’t finished, until how time affects loyalty, habits, weariness, and love in the relations of human life.
Meanwhile, the relationship between children and parents who have eroded urbanisation, and husband-wife relations are discussed in animated documentaries. In these seven films, audience is not asked to think of the reality projected on screen, but rather to feel what is seen. A truly emotional rollercoaster, making us take a deep breath and remember to smile.
