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 Cięcina between 1980 and 1982.
A mosaic of genre scenes documenting the first two years of life of Paulina, daughter of Antoni and Elżbieta. The young parents, with the help of the midwife, Mrs Widz, and the grandparents, Elżbieta and Franciszek Wojciuch, bathe and swaddle little Paulina. The family spends time at home and outdoors. The girl takes her first steps, walks with her mother and plays with other children.
