FAR FROM THE CITY
POLISH TITLE: DALEKO OD MIASTA
REPRESENTED BY KFF
A group of boys stay in the countryside for the summer, far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Bored, they spend time talking about their future adult life and make a film. It brings back the memories of childhood holidays that lasted forever. There was enough time to do anything: sleep in a tent or talk about ghosts at night. ‘They are just a different race’, as one of the protagonists says. The boys are still immature – they can still have a serious discussion about the Bermuda Triangle.
