DESCRIPTION

Hotel students arrive by bus at night for internships. The place is strange, the atmosphere is restless. Everyone is deprived of their names. On the badge it says ‘Anne’ or ‘Paul’ - that's enough. They're supposed to be doing peculiar, incomprehensible things and activities. Time is relative and space turns out to be an impossible figure. Open space for interpretation, mixing of species and conventions become the hallmark of the style of the Jagoda Szelc. The film was commissioned by the Łódź Film School and features twenty graduating actresses and actors.
