Diagnosis

Poland | 2018 | documentary | 78 min. Panorama of the Polish documentaries

Łódź, once a dynamic industrial centre and the “promised land”, needs a psychological dissection today. During its couch therapy inspired with psychoanalysis, a group of residents answer personal questions which also refer to collective subconsciousness. Surreal associations confronted with abstract pictures of desolate streets create a hypnotising image of Łódź as a live organism and, at the same time, a ghost city. It is a place of dashed hopes and never-ending dreams.
