KinoPolska: Guest Tomasz Wasilewski

Young director, screenwriter and producer Tomasz Wasilewski presents his most recent feature PŁYNĄCE WIEŻOWCE and Ryszard Bugajski's INTERROGATION.

PŁYNĄCE WIEŻOWCE (Floating Skyscrapers, Poland 2013, 5.11., screening attended by Tomasz Wasilewski) Kuba, a competitive swimmer, lives with his girlfriend. One day he meets a young man who awakens unexpected feelings in him. Kuba is scared and fascinated at the same time. By drawing on close-ups, claustrophobic rooms and oppressive skyscraper landscapes, Wasilewski succeeds in creating an impressive reflection about the freedom to be yourself.
