ELA - SKETCHES ON A DEPARTURE ABOUT THE FILM TRAILER CONTACTS

About the film

Every new beginning comes from another beginning's end.

Ela lives in a small provincial town in Poland. Her daily life is stuck in a routine, balancing work and family. But Ela has a dream: Like many young Polish people, Ela, too, wants to escape the tristesse of the council housing estate and move West, into a better life.

'This is the story of separation as a new beginning. A film about the desire to get away and the duty to remain. With the camera seeking answers just like the protagonists. Tender and haunting, existential in both large and small. It is a profound look into the future of a generation. A moving film full of meaning without being intrusive.'
- Jury's statement, 29th International Short Film Festival FILMFEST DRESDEN
