"A LONG TIME AGO IN SILESIA" WINS IN GREAT BRITAIN
The short feature film "A Long Time Ago in Silesia," directed by Tomasz Proktowicz, was chosen the Best Student Film at the recently finished Pennine Film Festival.
Pennine Film Festival started on May 6 in the north-west of England. The international festival aims to promote independent cinema in this region. This year, the Best Student Film award went to Tomasz Proktowicz for his film "A Long Time Ago in Silesia."
The film "A Long Time Ago in Silesia" tells the story of twin brothers, Rysiek and Stefan, who live in an orphanage run by nuns. It is located in a small Silesian town, where Poles and Germans live next to each other. They had bad luck as they grow up in one of the most abominable periods in the history of this place - in the period of the third Reich. Soon their roads would part in order to cross several years later, in extremely unpleasant circumstances.
