So It Doesn't Hurt
Żeby nie bolalo, Poland, 1998, 47 min, 35 mm, Portrait
Second part of WIZYTA, made twenty-four years later. Urszula Flis, the woman who runs a country farm on her own, is revisited by the photo-reporter Erazm Ciolek and the "Gazeta Wyborcza" journalist Agnieszka Kublik. The film makes a reference to the first visit, which focused on the interference of the media in Flis's life, the attempts of the communist Polish propaganda to manipulate her. A film about loneliness, lost (or won?) life, the limits of filmmakers' interference in the life of a documentary protagonist. Flis herself sets such a limit, saying "let it not hurt". Awards: 1998 - 3rd prize at the 9th Balticum Film and Television Festival at Bornholm; Golden Dove for a short documentary at the Leipzig Film Festival; Special Award at the International Documentary and Anthropology Festival in Parnu (Estonia).
