The Balcony Movie


Original title: Film balkonowy, Poland, 2021, documentary 100 min. VO, EN subtitles

Directed by Pawe? ?ozi?ski

Can anyone be a movie hero? Can the world be locked in one film frame? Director Pawe? ?ozi?ski is watching people from his balcony as they are passing by: sad, thoughtful, glued to their phones, young and old. Neighbours, random visitors or simply passers-by. The filmmaker accosts them, asks questions, talks about how they deal with life. Standing there with his camera for over 2 years he has created a space for dialogue, a lay confessional of sorts, where everyone can stop by and tell their story. The protagonists carry secrets and mysteries, and are not easy to label. Every story is unique, and life always surpasses imagination. “The Balcony Movie” is a radical comeback to the beginnings of cinema, when man approached the camera. Maybe it’s enough to stop for a moment to get a deeper insight?
