A short film advertising the newspaper Sztandar Młodych (The Banner of Youth),
noteworthy for its abstract elements painted directly onto film stock. An attempt at
showing the complexity of the world in a capsule, the film reflects the new policy of the
openness to the West during the Thaw of the late 1950s in Poland.
