    Psie Pole is created in the form of video-art para documentary. "These are intimate visions, things that are in my head that are taking place in Katowice. Why Katowice? I was born there, I live all over the world, but the visions that I have are usually connected with this place." Majewski said. The shoot started in October and took place in several locations in the Silesia region. Majewski is a theater director, writer and painter. His films include Angelus, The Garden Of Earthly Delights, The Roe's Room, Basquiat-Dance Of Death and Gospel According to Harry.
