The last day of school at a junior high school in a small Polish town. Waiting for the graduation party, so-called “komers”, a group of students spend time at a public pool. In the following days, they taste love, rejection and first disappointments. The record of what they’ve been through is a cherry on top of their junior-high-school days. It’s also a portrait of modern youth in search of identity, the sense of belonging and bonds.



Born in 1988 in Kedzierzyn-Kozle, Poland; studied at Krzysztof Kieslowski Film School in Katowice and Andrzej Wajda Film School in Warsaw; worked with Malgorzata Szumowska (Body/Cialo and Mug). In his practice he opens up the characters whose image in Poland used to be seen through violent stereotypes due to their marginal social positions. The protagonists in his stories relate to the small town life and non-normative sexuality. His first production Filipka – a documentary about his gender fluid friend, premiered this year at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw.



“I took up this subject for my debut, since it is based on my personal experiences and depicts the environment I was raised in and struggled. Its a story about young people and their problems in the times of the Internet, friend apps, and romantic prospects, over a period when creating genuine relations is unnaturally difficult. The action takes place somewhere in Poland, where ‘LGBT free zones’ are a reality in 2020. A portrait of modern day junior high school students who have a lot in common with each other and the rest of the world – they all seek love, a sense of belonging and affinity.”
