An original trio of young characters – imaginative Zosia, sensitive Oskar and independent Kinga – have to enter adulthood earlier than their peers. They take the viewer on a journey to the world of children’s compassion, artistic expression, sense of humour and force of character. The world in which friendship, love and closeness to another person is like oxygen, which carries them through the hardest moments.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with cinematographer Wojciech Staroń.

Full of humor, touching story about tenderness, that is the most modest kind of love .

Bartosz Staszczyszyn, Culture.pl

It captivates from the very first shot, both thanks to the main characters and the phenomenal photos of Wojciech Staroń and Zuzanna Zachara.

Agnieszka Pilacińska, Pełna Sala

Endearing but never sentimental in showing that the struggle for a non-visual identity is tough but enormously satisfying.

Meredith Taylor, Filmuforia

Makes for a work that is truly motivating and deeply resonant, becoming an astonishing account of the human condition, and one
that finds achingly beautiful details in absolutely every moment.

Matthew Joseph Jenner, International Cinephile Society
