Andrzej Wysokiński was born on July 11, 1934 in Marki, near Warsaw. After graduating from the Academy of Physical Education, he worked as a fencing and skiing coach, as well as a PE teacher at a school in Radziechowy. Andrzej’s first films were records of everyday life in Łódź with his wife Elżbieta and son Marek. As a sports enthusiast, he also recorded skiing competitions, tennis court games or foreign trips to the mountains. After separating from Elżbieta, he settled in the Beskid region of Radziechowy with his partner Jadwiga and daughter Jolanta. Andrzej recorded family films first with an 8mm tape camera, but in later years, as technology developed, he changed equipment and used VHS and digital cameras.

Film made in  1975.
