|Maciek’s Father||Miroslaw Baka|
Story of a conflict of a father’s expectations with the power and sensitivity of his son. Maciek – the main protagonist of the film – is no longer a boy, but has not yet become a man. He wants to satisfy the ambitions of his father, and – as everyone in the family – be a butcher. But he is too sensitive to make an animal suffer. The boy directs all his warm feelings towards an old, neglected orchard – the only memory of his mother and discovers his supernatural abilities.
