Reality Shock (2005)


This is a documentary with staged scenes. Over hill, over dale there was a forest at the Polish-Belarus border.


Far from the noise of big towns, the people who lived there prepared themselves to join the European Union. There is a pub “By Wolodia”, a peculiar backwater from the times of Lenin’s cult, where the main characters of the film meet. They are as unususal as the pub itself. The film contains a big portion of music; it is comical and dramatic in the same time.

Filmography - new


Beginning of 1945, Upper Silesia, Poland. The last days of WW2. At the just liberated areas, the Communist Security Service eliminates its enemies under the pretext of punishing “national traitors.” It organizes a labour camp for Germans, Silesians and Poles, at the site of a former Nazi concentration camp, which is named “Zgoda” / “Reconciliation”. Franek, who is in love with a Polish prisoner Anna, joins the camp crew to rescue her. He doesn't know that one of the inmates is Erwin, his German friend, who, like himself, has also loved Anna for a long time. Franek joins Communists in the illusory hope of outsmarting the system.
