Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Leipzig 2015


Directed by: 

After 70 years in exile the two brothers Mieczyslaw and Alfons come back to their home in Poland. A new start? A resumé? Alfons is painting and gets international recognition as an artist, his brother Mieczyslaw is tired. Scenes of great closeness and sometimes funny arguments convey the strong connection between the brothers. The movies which the brothers shot by themselves through their whole live unfold an enormous artistic energy. Wojciech Staron, both cinematographer and director, composes from this material, modestly symbolic shots of his own and a unique soundtrack a convincing reflection about the profound question after the meaning of our life.
