Paperbox / Papierowe pudełko

Running time: 9'
Zbigniew Czapla, POL 2011, 9’

In May 2010 thousands of people were made homeless when the Vistula flooded. In the ruins of his parents’ house Czapla finds nothing but a box of old family photographs. But they too have been severely damaged by water and mud, and cannot be saved. Film as an attempt to preserve bygones eradicated by the natural course of time, unfamiliar fragments, and a catastrophe as one’s own origin and family history.
