Wehikul Czasu is a non-narrative film composed of a meditation between home movies and new material gathered as a response and an attempt at gathering an understanding of the self. It is an instalment in a series of shorts, I eventually intend to fuse into a feature film.
The project focuses on myself and the relationship with my own memories, particularly from a perspective of those being distant, nearly forgotten moments. The previous chapter focused much more on the experience that ‘was’, consisting largely of home movies, almost establishing its own grammar. Wehikuł Czasu comes in as a response to its predecessor and interests itself mostly in responding and exchanging dialogue between what was, and what is. However, the film doesn’t try to stand on either coast exclaiming to be from one or the other. Instead, the film attempts to be much more fluid between associating itself with a period of time. Though the film tries to be of both eras, it notices its paradoxical element of trying to be from then but being formulated in the now. It is a process of unpacking and understanding (mostly myself), which will constantly revolve in a never-ending cycle.
“Being a solo filmmaking project, I was able to focus on every aspect of the finished product and fully connect emotionally to it. Ultimately, what I want the audience to feel is that personal connection between them, the film and me as the constructor - a peek behind the curtain of the intimate, if you will.”
