It is said that watching your own films is usually watching mistakes. Not this time!
Since March, 2011 with Aga Gonczarek we have been working hard on producing, shooting and post producing our first feature-length documentary film, Muzyki (Musics). It’s been half a year now, but I am so pleased to see it finished finally! A lot of fun, lot of work and great results. Summarizing the project: 5 days of shooting, 2 music videos (separate and incorporated in the film), a few shorter music clips, and a 55-minute long creative documentary.
Muzyki (Musics) is a creative documentary about the stimulative process of making music, materialized in an artistic collaboration of the musician Michał Zygmunt and filmmakers Aga Gonczarek & Patryk Kizny. It explores the inspirations, the quest for one’s roots, the artistic meetings and the musical journey into the unknown, which all lead to the creation of a unique music album and a series of exceptional live music performances. It reveals a modern interpretation of Polish roots culture by means of music and imagery.
The main characters are three artists: a contemporary Polish musician, Michał Zygmunt, a Swiss music producer, Roli Mosimann and a Polish folk musician of older generation, Zdzisław Jamborski, who have learnt to to read the score late in his life. Each of these characters tells his own story, shares his fascination for the music and brings his own unique attitude and personal charisma to the recording studio, influencing the work on the album. Each of them has different goals and spreads different message.
Those three different perspectives build up an interesting story about the multidimensional meaning of music and leave the audience with numerous unanswered questions about the old world that passed away and contemporary human condition.
The premiere of the film is taking place at Camerimage festival held in Bydgoszcz, Poland on Nov 26th – Dec 3rd.
Plus Camerimage is the most recognized festival dedicated to the art of cinematography and its creators – cinematographers. The 19th edition of the Festival will be held from November 27th till December 3rd, 2011 in the City of Bydgoszcz, Poland.
