The Balcony Movie

Friday, Dec 2, 2022 at 6:30 pm

Location: Bartos Screening Room

With Paweł Łoziński in person. Screening followed by discussion and reception.

Dir. Paweł Łoziński. 2021, 100 mins. In Polish with English subtitles. Filmed before the pandemic yet prescient about our collective craving for connection in isolation, Paweł Łoziński’s quietly revelatory documentary was shot entirely from his balcony in Warsaw. Elevated from the street and armed with just his camera and boom mic, Łoziński engages strangers and friends, old couples and young mothers, commuting workers and ex-convicts, in philosophical queries that evolve, over many months, into confessions, course corrections, and complicated relations, offering a cumulative portrait of the struggles and moods of the times while exemplifying the humanist curiosity and formalist rigor of the unseen director behind the camera.
