At 70, Bogdan has nothing but a 51-year-old Wartburg, winner of the competition for the Ugliest Car of Poland in 2015, and no one but his 94-year-old mother Kazimiera, whom he takes travelling in his Wartburg all around Poland, whenever he can. He would like to go on another trip with his mother, perhaps her last, to the place where little Kazia was forced to work during the war. Mother and son hit the road. The film received the Złoty Lajkonik (Golden Hobby-Horse) Prize at the 57th Kraków Film Festival.

We meet the protagonists in New York underground, to be taken to the surface and learn more about their lives, desires, passions, hopes, and dreams: some forlorn, others still awaiting fulfilment.

A young German of Polish origin sets forth in the footsteps of his grandfather: a wartime hero, soldier of the clandestine Home Army (AK). He is taken to Radzimów, a small village where the Polish, Czech, and German borders meet. The peaceful and modest life of locals conceals a horrible secret, whose traces, discovered with an increasing involvement of the young European, lead far eastwards, to Hanachov, no longer extant on the administrative map of Ukraine…

There had been no such place on the map of Poland until the first true music club was set up in Warsaw’s district of Wola in 1992. Graced by performances of the whole constellation of greatest contemporary Polish stars, it was the fulfilment of dreams of young people who had no money or other assets and yet managed to create a cult location at the scale of not only to Warsaw but the whole country. The history of Fugazi became a mirror reflecting the convoluted history of Poland of the early 1990s.

A philosophic road movie. The road leads the hero and his artistic pursuits from the East (Siberia) to the West of Europe (Berlin). A Kraków painter, his unconventional paintings, and equally unconventional street art exhibitions are a pretext to tell an important story of artistic pursuits of identity. They are a reflection over the world and the human, and an observation of the history of the world. The artist says he thinks the Western way but feels the Eastern way, and so stands riven between the East and the West: himself, and his paintings with him.

Bohaterowie codzienności / Everyday Heroes
