Wajda School Retrospective


Marta Minorowicz
Screening time  
27.02. / Thursday, 15:00 - 17:00 Theatre 3  
Music played by a young therapist leads us into the world of old people’s home.

Closeness and fellowship of the young man makes them feel needed and noticed. While he is looking after them, he feels the inevitability of death and tries to fi nd the meaning of his own life. The musical term decrescendo mounts up here to the existential overtone.


Marta Minorowicz

Marta Minorowicz graduated from the Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing in 2010 and in 2003 she graduated from the History of Theater and English at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. For many years she collaborated with Polish Television where she made dozens of social news cover stories. She has extensive experience in television and film production. She is interested in exploring the harmonies and conflicts that exist within and between the human and natural worlds. Minorowicz is drawn to those conflicts that operate inter-generationally and that reveal the fragility of customs in the face of change.
