Documentary film

reż: Bartosz Paduch

The film is an attempt to capture the phenomenon of Maciej Parowski, the editor responsible for the emerging fame of several generations of Polish fantasy writers. He was behind the success of such titles as "The Witcher" by Andrzej Sapkowski, or the Oscar-nominated "Cathedral" by Tomasz Bagiński, based on a story by Jacek Dukaj. We observe Parowski's biography against the background of the rapidly changing history of Poland: from the struggle with the Polish People's Republic, through the period of transformation, to the birth of the Internet and the decline of the printed word. Animated sequences of the main character's comic book alter ego perfectly complement the recalled memories.
