The video “Finest Dust” from 2019 is a lyrical story inspired by the actions of one of Poland’s most important contemporary feminists and rights defenders, Katarzyna Bratkowska. A film about the energy potential of a woman whose struggle and persistence met far more obstacles than rewards. It tells the story of an ash-dusted, darkened, threatening to erupt, deeply bubbling element similar to a volcanic eruption. It’s a film about generations of women passing on the energy and anger needed to fight back. A woman sweats – she oozes anger, fear and frustration. Now our generation is devoting its energy and nerves to clashing with the patriarchy. We explode and freeze. Women’s strikes are underway.
