ABOUT THE STORY

THE BOOK "MOM DIES
The script for the film was based on the title short story from the collection "Mama dies Saturday" (published by Afera, Main Award in the 1st Competition of the Tygodnik Powszechny Foundation and the Book Institute - Debut Promoters, 2015). According to the critically acclaimed Rafał's prose - the Radio Dwójka recorded a radio play. Filled with existential terror and non-obvious symbolism, the works are linked by the great theme of family relations. "The author does not judge and does not score, he is authentic. He skillfully uses understatements. The condensation of in-depth psychological portraits, full range of emotions and extraordinary sensitivity confirms how careful Niemczyk is," we read in the reviews.
