Z daleka widok jest piękny

It Looks Pretty From A Distance

 
The directorial debut of visual artists Wilhelm and Anka Sasnal takes place in a secluded Polish village near the woods and a river. It is here where the story of a scrapper and a girl unfolds. In an air of ubiquitous secrecy, the villagers and the couple live their everyday dull lives of hardship until the scrapper vanishes. His disappearance triggers a chain of unexpected events. In strikingly beautiful surroundings, under a scorching sun, human evil surfaces. IT LOOKS PRETTY FROM A DISTANCE was screened at the New Horizons Film Festival 2011, where it got an award for Best New Polish Film.
