Zygmunt Buda was born in Poznań in 1924 and was interested in photography since his childhood. From 1941, he worked in the Poznań photographic company Foto-Stewner, founded by Ernest Stewner. After the end of the war, he worked as a photographer in the Ministry of Internal Affairs, from which, in the 50s, he was dismissed for political incorrectness. From the 60s, he worked in the Film Services Department at the corner of Marszałkowska and Krucza streets in Warsaw. Zygmunt recorded films with a business camera with a 16-millimeter tape and a private SANYO camera with an 8-millimeter tape, which he received as a gift from a family living in the USA. His sons, Jacek and Marek, as well as the next generations of the Buda family, also became enthusiasts of filming family life. 

Film shot during a family holiday in Międzywodzie in 1956. Marek and Jacek dance with the little girls at a dance party organized at the holiday resort. The brothers, dressed in their costumes from the party, walk with their mother Katarzyna and her sister Janina (Jasia) Stafisz on the beach and watch the fishing boats standing on the shore.
