Panic Attack by Paweł Maślona Panic Attack by Paweł Maślona

GDYNIA: Paweł Maślona’s debut feature mixing six stories about ordinary people in extreme situations will premiere at the 42nd Gdynia Film Festival (18-23 September 2017).

The film follows six people and situations in which they experience severe stress. A freaky radio speaker, a waiter with ambitions of conquering the world, a perfect bride in distress, a successful writer of criminal novels, a husband and a wife on the journey of their lives, and a specialist in animal behaviorism – they all get a panic attack. All the protagonists reach a situation that has only one solution.

"Panic Attack tells a story of several seemingly unrelated people, who become suddenly connected by a fast approaching catastrophe, making them face their worst fears. During a panic attack, the awareness of a lurking end becomes unbearable and fear prevents any rational behavior. I have experienced a few panic attacks, moments in which I was sure my life was over. Those moments were absolutely terrifying, but now they seem ridiculously funny and I believe that my characters share the same experience of something equally terrible and funny at the same time", director Paweł Maślona said. He penned the script together with Aleksandra Pisula and Bartłomiej Kotschedoff.

The cast of popular Polish actors includes Artur Żmijewski, Dorota Segda, Olaf Marchwicki, Nicolas Bro, Małgorzata Hajewska-Krzysztofik, Bartłomiej Kotschedoff, Aleksandra Pisula, Magdalena Popławska, Daniel Guzdek and Grzegorz Damięcki.

The film was produced by Jan Kwieciński through Akson Studio with a budget of 700,000 EUR, of which 471,199 EUR / 2 m PLN came as a production grant from the Polish Film Institute.

The film was shot in November 2016 and will be released in Polish cinemas by Akson Dystrybucja on 19 January 2018. International sales are managed by New Europe Film Sales.
