To Mother

(13 mins 51 secs, Poland)


Aleksander Szamałek has had a passion for photography since childhood, which rapidly developed into a passion for film. He is a student of Cinematography at Kieślowski Film School and has previously spent two years in Paris where he studied Theory of the Film and Theatre Arts at the Paris Nanterre X University.


After years spent in a closed centre, Adam, now an adult, returns to his home village and to his mother. He’s a gentle soul, who loves animals and taking long walks. The village should become his enclave, but memories from his childhood resurface. Why was he taken away in the first place?
