It’s a Very Pretty Picture


It’s a Very Pretty Picture - dir. Jakub Ciosiński, Poland 2021, 30’ 

These intimate situations were recorded with a phone, registered on a VHS tape or filmed using a digital camera. Jakub Ciosiński shows the life of a three-generational family in the context of love failures and problems with relationship building. Can a camera lens serve as a tool to provide film therapy or to understand family stories? This documentary family self-portrait combines not only different filming techniques but also different stages of life and social norms with regard to relationships. Almost all members of the Ciosińskis have a say in it.
