An unknown phenomenon is spreading through the streets of Warsaw in the 1950s: drunk and rioting youths. Who are these troublemakers who conformed so little to the official concept of man?

What do you think of the Polish youth? A street poll with an apparently harmless question. But Marceł Łoziński plays out the scenario several times and exposes quite pragmatically how the manipulation of media and public opinion works.

A draughtsman-animator has ambitions: he wants to create a milestone of the cinematic art, no less. Using only pen, paper and imagination, in the artist’s sketchbook. A magnificent cineastic punk DIY rocket thunders through the auditorium, racing at the speed of light past quotes from the cosmos of American film and television entertainment on a wild and funny zigzag course. A “Super Film” has its own standards – set by Piotr Kabat.

The musicians of a company brass band enthusiastically rehearse for their concert. Kazimierz Karabasz lovingly captures not only every detail but also paints an utterly unheroic portrait of the working class. Groundbreaking in many ways. Golden Dove in Leipzig 1960 and the most awarded Polish documentary until today.
