  • "The Escape" is a classical puppet animation that shows a particular fragment of cruel reality of two characters - castaways saved from an unknown disaster. The story is inspired inter alia by the events of World War II, the accounts of a few people who "have survived their own death" - death that was coming unexpectedly from their neighbors or friends. The events known as massacres and slaughters of people living in villages in Wolyn, Belarus or Jedwabne have influenced the story. They share a common and distinctive motif - burning "wooden piles" - buildings and barns full of people.

  • A woman and a child - two persons saved by the remembrance. An apocalyptic annihilation has happened in their world. Afterimages of those traumatic events interfere the perception of reality. Woman and child are haunted by a constant sense of insecurity and danger. The surrounding world gives them no chance for the survival. Main characters exist, but as if they were dead. They meet, not seeing each other, living only in images whose details are getting blurred by time. Last remains of human oblivion fade away.
