A Little Bit of Paradise

Poland2020documentary19'National Competition

The family shown in the film inhabits their own microcosm. Even though the smokestacks of an agglomeration loom on the horizon, the family’s life follows a separate course, without any unnecessary words. It is determined, on the one hand, by modest financial means, on the other –the joy of freedom. Andrzej Cichocki's documentary debut depicts a series of everyday events, arranged to match the rhythm of a family's life. There is a poetic dimension of each situation: a show of killing a hen, a football match watched on a TV set in the backyard or children’s carefree games.
