beyond the bug river

Beyond the Bug River is a socio-cultural project in which the authors seek out and attempt to understand their family roots. Indeed, many residents of Szczecin can trace their ancestry to the present-day Ukraine. These ancestors arrived in the Recovered Territories following the ethnic cleansing and the exile of Poles from the area of Wołyń in the 1940s. Those were terrible times, yet they are seldom remembered and discussed.

Cosmic joe

Awards: 

Szczecin European Film Festival 2018

official selection at odcienie wolnosci, within the 15. Film Festival Millenium Docs Against Gravity

Previous screening: 

June 14, 2018 at 6 p.m. | Klub 13 muz (Szczecin)

The short documentary piece is a reflective journey through the cosmic philosophy of Joe Staunton – a poet and musician who lives in an area of the Burren, known as the New Line. He allows us a window into his private life, in the small cosy caravan, and, spending the day with us, invites to reflect together on our responsability and contribution into creating the nice, friendly, enjoyable world.

„Cosmic Joe” loosely touches on the current problems of the wave of immigration and refugees making us think about the absurdity of the idea of boarders and aware about the responsability which is involved by the freedom demanded by all of us. Although it does not resemble the importunated piece of dogmatic propaganda, but rather the easy-going, casual conversation in the heart of nature.
