GFQ 1_2013

SIENIAWKA SIENIAWKA is a journey into humanity’s irrational sub- conscious. Stefan tries to make his way through a post-industrial no man’s land. An encounter with a stranger leads to the line between reality and imagination becoming blurred. The future and the past become intertwined. Visions emerge from Stefan’s mind of another time. The cold-blooded surgeon used to work in the dissecting room. There was a cinema where everyone would go to on the week- end. A state of complete delirium caused a young man’s heart to stop beating. By passing through memory and the imaginary, Stefan wit- nesses death, mental illness and the margins of humanity in a world that resembles our own. At the end, all that remains are ruins – everything begins to dis- solve. The outside world no longer resembles the one that he was forced to leave. Internal chaos is mirrored by external chaos.
