The Journey

(Daniel Szczechura, 1970, 7 min)

Polish title: Podróż

Regarded as one of the most controversial animated films ever produced in Poland. For much of the movie, nothing actually happens. The camera observes a traveller through the window of a train. Only the passing monotonous landscape visible though the opposite window disrupts the static image on the screen.

Directed by Daniel Szczechura
