Mariusz Wilczynski’s astonishing debut feature is a deeply personal, hand drawn animation, over a decade in the making. The dreamlike images are exorcising ghosts from his past growing up in Lodz during the communist era in 1970s Poland. The town is full of alienated souls, literary characters, comic book heroes, family and friends who wander through a gloomy, industrial labyrinth, enacting scraps of memories and dreams. A dark, surrealist satire, the film conjures nightmarish images from scratchily inked scraps of paper, orchestrated in an expansive and unique cinematic style.
