MICHAŁ MARCZAK AWARDED AT SUNDANCE FESTIVAL
Michał Marczak, the author of the film "All sleepless nights," was given the Directing Award in the World Cinema Documentary competition at the Sundance Film Festival.
"All sleepless nights" had its international première at the Sundance festival. Unconventional feature film by Michał Marczak, because of its unprecedented authenticity in filming actors, participated in the prestigious International Documentary Film Competition. In this competition, the director won the Directing Award for creating a visually stunning film and pushing the art of nonfiction into brave new territories.
"All sleepless nights" is a portrait of contemporary Polish twenty-year-olds, which has a chance to become the manifest of the restless generation born after 1989. For two years, Warsaw streets, clubs, cafes and apartments turned into a natural film set, where there was made one of the most intimate and truest tales about young people in the history of Polish cinema since the times of "Innocent Sorcerers" by Andrzej Wajda.
The Sundance Film Festival – is the largest annual independent film festival in the USA, it is held in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and in the ski resort Sundance in Utah since 1978.
