CALLING

by Marcin Dudziak

synopsis

A father-and-son rafting trip down a mountain river serves as the backdrop to an almost wordless story—measured, poetic—about the unique moment in this boy’s life when something intangible yet somehow anticipated reveals its meaning. The boy’s curiosity and desire for new experiences grow stronger than his fear of a world he does not fully grasp. The feeling of solitude and vulnerability he experiences despite his father’s presence foreshadows his transformation.
