HOUSE OF THE CHOSEN

DIRECTOR
WOJCIECH NOWAK
DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY
SZYMON LENKOWSKI

House of the chosen can be treated as a kind of crime novel. It is a search for the intellectual guru who has disappeared in mysterious circumstances. At the same time, the reality show "House of the chosen" he invented is being made on television. It is also a story about love and the question of what it is and can be in an era that makes it a fetish, and at the same time denies its supra-individual source. In the film, we look behind the scenes of the media people, heroes, who create the picture of the world for us. Or maybe the House ... deals mainly with evil, or rather evil, which existence's we deny, and the evel that - deprived of it's name - gains freedom in our reality?

END OF THE WORLD

DIRECTOR

MONIKA PAWLUCZUK

co-DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY

SZYMON LENKOWSKI

An intimate, creative and very immensely visual documentary where couple of stories weave into one narrative during in one night.
Some troubled by loneliness, call an emergency number 112, others call the radio broadcast on the end of the world predicted by the Mayan calendar.
We hear the radio in the ambulance, and in a city’s monitoring centre, where we observe the
night life of the city presented on dozens of screens.

 

The film was qualified for OSCARS 2017 in the best documentary short film category.

Two blundering terrorists with lofty ideologies, but ordinary talent, on a mission to change the world.

A bollywood action comedy satire film directed by Karan Anshuman and produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani starring Riteish Deshmukh, Pulkit Samrat, and Jacqueline Fernandez.
