description

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.

Part 1
A family party. Jarosław pours champagne into glasses. Guests sit at a table, eat and smile at the camera. Paula, Jarosław’s daughter, crawls around the apartment. Dressed in a bib, Paula with a dirty face sits in a chair at the kitchen table and clumsily reaches for the products lying on the table. Two women knit and laugh at Jarosław, who films them.

Part 2
A shot of players coming off a makeshift pitch.

Part 3
The Krajewski family spends time outdoors in the company of a couple with a child the age of Paula, Jarosław’s daughter. The parents carry their daughters in their arms and smile at the camera.
