Urszula Antoniak tells a story "Beyond Words". This Polish-Dutch film follows an aspiring Berlin lawyer. He is a Polish emigrant, who, like Witold Gombrowicz, sees emigration not as a tragedy, but as an opportunity to reinvent himself. His life is not so much about national identity - he feels like a Berliner - but more about the constant interplay between mimicry and being yourself. After spending a weekend with his distant Polish father, he starts to miss not only him, but also a sense of having put down roots in life. "Beyond Words" stars Justyna Wasilewska, Jakub Gierszał and Andrzej Chyra. The film is being produced by Piotr Dzięcioł through Opus Film and co-produced by Family Affair Films (Netherlands).
Shooting starts in July 19 in Berlin.
