Moje miasto, 2003, 60 min.
|Cichy’s Mother||Dorota Pomykala|
|Gozdzik’s Father||Krzysztof Stroinski|
A slice of life in the mining/industrial region of Upper Silesia. Many mines and factories closed down in 1990s, resulting in high unemployment, economic depression, and general hopelessness. We follow 25-years-old unemployed Gozdzik who lives with his alcoholic father, his mother, always anxious about the future, and an assortment of neighbors. The gray monotony of daily life is broken by arrival of a long-absent uncle, a new girl staying with neighbors, and a tragedy involving Gozdzik’s best friend.
