This week’s short is “Bipoland,” a film by the very talented local filmmaker Matty Brown. Like his other short, "Look Up at the Stars, Portugal!," “Bipoland” is a stunning, gorgeous, and epic swirl of colors and bold images. He writes:
This piece was supposed to be about Auschwitz, but in making the video the surprise was how vibrant, tough, and full of life the Polish people are. I was as emotionally impacted with these new wonderful friends and sensory overload of the gorgeous present-day country as I was with sympathy and sadness at the camps. Even though they are very tough souls, I started to admire them and their country.
For the best results, Brown recommends that you watch the short with earphones.
