An inconspicuous street survey on young people presents the spectrum of manipulation available to television. Thanks to image and sound edition it is possible to turn the original picture and message of contributions around. Łoziński first records a variety of answers to the question about the condition of young people at present provided by random passers‐by and then shows how the material obtained may be manipulated, depending on the filmmaker’s needs.
