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 shot around 1971 in Gryfino during a camp of the fencing section of the Resursa Łódź sports club. The competitors are practicing fencing positions in the hall and outdoors. Camp female participants spend their free time outdoors, swinging on swings and swimming in the lake. Jadwiga, Andrew’s beloved one, is walking around the town.
