UNDER A PLACID SKY

by Anna Konik

synopsis

Unhurried in its rhythm, this impressionistic film portrays the director’s hometown. Her camera lens captures Dobrodzień (or Guttentag, which is its pre-war name) as a place marked with the memory of its former residents – Poles, Germans and Jews – and their complicated coexistence. Silent and patient observation gives the voice to old houses, post-industrial buildings and those witnesses to history and their descendants who still remember the glory days as well as the tragic fate of this multinational community.
