SLEEPINCORD

POLISH TITLE: SNĘPOWINA

An ambiguous story, which should be watched more than once, where the protagonist is a dream. Marta Pajek’s film, drawn with a characteristic line and going on in three types of space: abstract, dreamlike and realistic, beguiles and continually spurs the viewer to look for answers to the questions about mutual relations between the worlds presented. The allusion to the umbilical cord in the title suggests that the dream is the only way to connect us with the reality inaccessible to our eyes.
