The author of the film is Jarosław Krajewski (born in 1952 in Poznań). As a teenager, he received his first camera as a gift from his parents. Since then, he has filmed important events and family life: weddings, holiday trips to the Powidz area, as well as his daughters, Paula and Zuzanna, growing up. Jarosław was interested in journalism. In his youth, he belonged to the Club of Youth Journalists (KDM), later he worked, among others, in the office and the company newspaper in a furniture factory and as a tour guide in Europe. He currently lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. 

Most likely 1984. A visit to Baworowo, which took place as part of the trip of the Club of Youth Journalists to Szklarska Poręba. The members of KDM, which existed from 1983 to 1990, were the best graduates of the one-year course for young journalists. In total, in the history of the organization, there were no more than 40 people, among them, Jarosław Krajewski, the author of this film, and his wife. The film was recorded during a visit to Baworowo and the surrounding area. The participants walk along forest trails, admire the local architecture, and also visit the Czocha Castle, where from the observation tower, they admire the Kwisa River flowing among the forested banks. Since KDM’s trips were family trips, the film ends with a sequence of children of young journalists who play in a fountain, empty in the winter season.
