Cosmic Joe

by Aleks Rydzkowska & Louise Wallace

Awards: 

Szczecin European Film Festival 2018

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

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, cozy caravan, and, spending the day with us, invites to reflect together on our responsibility and contribution in 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 responsibility which is involved with the freedom demanded by all of us. Although it does not resemble the importunate piece of dogmatic propaganda, but rather the easy-going, casual conversation in the heart of nature.

Pomeranian Tale

by Aleks Rydzkowska

Stettin isn’t a typical city. With no center, its wide streets lead to nowhere. Just like a tourist, also the urban identity seems to be lost and suspended somewhere between German and Polish heritage. But what if the Pomeranian Tale wasn’t hidden in the shadow of Polish-German oaks, but rather in the scanty shade of Brazilian palm trees?

Beyond the Bug River

by Aleks Rydzkowska

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.
