Antoni Matuszny, who came from the Beskid village of Laliki, was interested in photography since he was a child. As he recalls, he wanted to save the life of his family and the countryside in the 1970s from oblivion. At the age of thirteen, he bought the first camera, and when he was 24 – the camera of the Soviet Quarz 5.
A film made in 1981 in Cięcina. Antoni, his wife Elżbieta, his in-laws Elżbieta and Franciszek Wojciuch and neighbor Wiktoria Stopka are working in a greenhouse cultivating tomatoes. A shot of children from the nearby school walking through the village to the celebrations marking the anniversary of Nazi Germany’s attack on Poland on 1 September 1939, taking place near the “Wędrowiec” fort in Węgierska Górka.
