Karolina Bielawska

Her last movie “Call me Marianna” won The Golden Horn for the best film at 55 Krakow Film Festival: “Style follows the story in this sensitive, intense and complex portrayal of a brave approach to life and the steps to a new life in harmony in one's real identity. It was encouraging to see this story being told at this  time.  Conceptionally  convincing  cinematic  levels  make  the  protagonist's  complex  life experiences comprehensible in an intimate as well as universal way. The journey through life from  man  to  woman  in  a  dualistically  dominated  culture,  the  transformation  from  being  a family man to the finally self­determined life as a woman throws an analytically inspired light on our society and unlocks the protagonist's extraordinary inner strength”.
