Marcel Łoziński takes his six-year-old son, Tomek, to the park on a mild spring day, and together they make a film of rare insight and meditative contemplation. Little Tomek is fitted with a small, hidden microphone, and the camera follows from a distance as he rides around the park on his scooter, observing nature around him and then stopping and talking with people, mostly senior citizens, whom he meets by chance. Tomek’s high spirits and natural child’s curiosity about the world around him sparks conversations with the older generation, who share their wisdom and reflections on life with the young boy, who in turn shares his innocent philosophizing.
Marcel Loziński was born in 1940 in Paris. He earned his degree in Film Directing from Łódź Film School. He has made a number of excellent documentaries, which include How It’s Done (2006), Anything Can Happen (1995), Microphone’s Test (1980), Front Collision (1975), The Visit (1974) and was nominated to the European Academy Award and American Oscar for his documentary film 89 mm from Europe (1993). For the past four years he has been the head of the documentary programme at the Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing.
