OPIS

OPIS

What does caring for a family mean? And when is the right time to start a revolution? Is it responsible to take such a risk when you are a woman, a mother, a peasant? “Maria” is the result of one year’s work documenting the lives of the inhabitants of Iwona Ogrodzka’s home village. Collected materials: recordings, conversations, and notes were used to create a biography of Maria, a fictional heroine who, sensing the impending threat, joins the uprising. The story suspended in an unspecified place and time is an attempt to supplement the history of Łukowica with a biography of a peasant who opposes the conformism in her immediate environment, decides to fight for a better future and in the name of this fight, leaves her children. “Maria” was produced with support from the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport of the Republic of Poland.
