dziwny, jest ten świat

directing

using footage collected over twenty years, dziwny, jest ten świat blends content and form, in order to create meaning and emotion from independent, unrelated moments in time. the film focuses on the beauty of memory whilst reminding the reader of the transient nature of life brought on by the passage of time.

dziwny, jest ten świat uses home videos from my childhood, as well as elements captured throughout his fledging career. the blend of unassociated flashes of time renders a unique reaction from each audience member. during production, a choice was made not to subtitle the film - even though a large proportion is in a language foreign to most of its viewers. the lack of comprehension from the reader, allows for the projection of personal memories associated with home, family and the passage of time. 

this film should also be read as an experiment with form and the birth of an idea to continue the theme in a longer form project, which is currently in production. more can be read here.
