The cinematographic machine deciphers Le Corbusier’s architectural machine. 762 apartments and 762 stories coexist in a copy of the “Room Unit” by the Swiss-French architect in some place in Poland. Three thousand people on fifteen floors live in this vertical city. The camera scans the passageways in arithmetic progression and enables us to pass through the doors to see inside their lives, almost like George Perec. At times, three seconds are enough for the portrait of an entire family.
Author of short films and artistic installations, her audiovisual work balances film, architecture and actions in the public space. As an explorer of new forms of narration, she was educated by working and training with other filmmakers, such as Szumowska, Łazarkiewicz, Komasa, Skolimowski or Koszałka. She studied Architecture at Krakow Technology University and Visual Arts in Le Fresnoy – National Studio of Contemporary Arts in France, and she is also a graduate of the Wajda School DOK PRO Documentary Programme.
