For decades, Jola did what was expected of her. As a mother of six and the wife of an abusive husband, she would put on her make-up and colourful clothes to pretend everything was fine. One day something breaks inside her and she finds the strength to escape a toxic relationship and start living life to the fullest. She is letting loose with her girlfriends and finds herself thrust into a new romance at a Latino dancing class.
dir. Piotr Dylewski, Poland 2016, 20’

To Thy Heart
dir. Ewa Borysewicz, Poland 2013, 10’
He was so handsome, with his jet-black hair, standing by the swing. When he smiled, eyes would stand on end. It was schizophrenic – he was so messed up that she would do whatever he said. She wanted to listen to his sweet-talking, wanted him to talk until the moon was up. Then she stopped pinning her hopes on him. She couldn’t let him off so easily for his betrayal. Ewa Borysewicz’s animation is a secular litany and a story of affection ending in bitter disappointment, echoing through a tower block estate.
