30 YEARS OF EXCUSES

POLISH TITLE: 30 LAT WYMÓWEK

REPRESENTED BY KFF

An atmospheric intimate portrait of drummer Michal “Gier” Giercuszkiewicz whose lifelong ambition has been to compose and record an album of original music. It’s a promise that Gier made to the world and to himself three decades earlier. A promise which, plagued by self-doubt, he is yet to deliver on. But the dream does not end there. The musician hopes to record his opus magnum in his self-built rafthouse, in a remote corner of Poland – the secluded mountain region of Bieszczady. The film follows Gier – a hero that is both fascinating and unafraid to show weakness – through what might be his final attempt at finding creative fulfillment.
