THE BALCONY MOVIE

POLISH TITLE: FILM BALKONOWY

Record of the director's observations from his first-floor apartment carried out over multiple years. The creator decided to stop and wait for the world to come to him. He stood on the balcony with his camera for two years and tried to record anyone walking under it. These meetings have been turned into a film about people and what they wanted to say about themselves. And about a curious director. He was amazed at how little he know about people. Almost nobody is what they seem. Every person carries their own riddles and secrets. They can't be easily labelled. Life can't be imagined.
