The madness

Jurek, Paweł

In a series of symbolic scenes the author presents a world deprived of human values, full of mechanical activities like copulation, selling, buying and killing. A sexual pervert wandering across a park after sunset, finding no other release but to bite the soil like an angry animal; he interferes with mindless girls, fans of supermarkets bargains taking a dummy for a real person, decent citizens whose moral codes appear to be equal with those of criminals.

Collection (scenes from the life of the provinces)

Jakubowski, Jarosław

A man called “Old”, after many years, comes back to his hometown from his journey to South America. Many “benevolent” people turn up, a soon as he arrives, as they suspect they could make business with “Old”. “Old” comes up with an idea of creating a museum of butterflies he brought from America. The project could change the life of theprovince, but nobody believes it could come true. The only people who care about something in the little town are“Old”, “Crazy” and the “Drunkard”- the defender of the poor.

Off you go!

The practice of relativity

Intrator, Bożena
Are we able to travel in time and space without vehicles? Are there several parallel worlds? Do we exist in many realities at the same time? Or are we limited to one and one only? Can our souls travel to another century, which is just another parallel reality and then can we penetrate into a person from the other reality? Can we become somebody else for a moment or even for longer than this?
