Piorun Stanislaw from Brudnow
PRODUCTION DATE: 2014
Piorun Stanislaw from Brudnow comes from the series Last Object, which is a collection of portraits of old people who live in a rural area in central Poland. We do not see them in the film but we can hear their voices, see objects they used in their past and objects they use now. In this particular film, we meet Mr. Stanislaw Piorun at his house. He tells a story about a curse which can be spelled just by a sheer admiration. Mr. Piorun gives a solution on how to get rid of a curse.

His artwork explores themes of history, time and memory often within a rural context.
