DIAGNOSIS, a documentary feature film debut of the director Ewa Podgórska and producer Małgorzata Wabińska (Entertain Pictures), will be presented in the work-in-progress section in Cannes. It will be the only documentary project from the selection of New Horizons’ Polish Days Goes to Cannes.
DIAGNOSIS is a journey into the subconscious of the city. The inhabitants’ couch confessions, life scenes in the form of reminiscences, shards of memory and emotions, combined with the cinematic images of the city create the analytical process. Everything creates one living organism, which has its light and dark sides. An organism, whose every element – a man, building, road, or tree – has an individual role to play, yet at the same time remains connected and one with the whole.
In 2016 DIAGNOSIS was presented as one of 12 most remarkable doc projects in production from Central and Eastern Europe as part of Docu Talents from the East in Karlovy Vary. At present the project is at the editing stage.
Film is co-financing by the Polish Film Institute, co-producing with EC1 Łódź - City of Culture and Fixa Film. Partners of the projects: Polish Institute in Paris, Atlas Sztuki Gallery, Municipal Centre of Culture in Bydgoszcz.
The closed screening at New Horizons’ Polish Days Goes to Cannes will be held on May 23 at 10 AM-12 noon at Palais K- level 4 in the Festival Palace during the 70th Cannes International Film Festival.
