Filmed, Edited and Directed by: Paweł Jankowski And Zdzisław Folga
Original Music Composed by: Marek Kubik
“The music is the narrator, a medium which tells the story of Podlasie’s magic and its borderland traits best. Music also tells us about the Eastern state of the soul,”
“Cząstka Podlasia” (A Touch of Podlasie), a film by three artists about their region…Podlasie, a historical region in eastern Poland, (that) covers the parts of three provinces: Podlaskie, Lubelskie, and a tiny portion of Mazowieckie. Named after its dense forests, it is viewed as the most pristine Polish region to this day. It is also called “Kresy” (the borderlands), a name it derives from the close proximity to the border. The accent of its people is called “kresowy,” due to its softness and similarity to Russian.
Zdzisław Folga, Paweł Jankowski and the score’s author Marek Kubik were trying to show in Cząstka Podlasia every feature of this magical land. Today, they are finishing their work on the 36-minute document, in which, just like in the cult Baraka by Rob Fricke from 1992, not a single word is said.”
