BRACIA / Brothers

BRACIA / Brothers

Two old Polish brothers come back to their homeland after having been deported to Siberia. The first one is an artist, the other a pragmatic engineer: despite their differences they love and support each other, and together they face the passage of time and the hardships of life. To tell their story, Wojciech Staroń paid recurring visits to the two brothers and took plenty of time to become a part of their daily lives. He captured the passing of time in the old men’s lives and reveals the deep bound that unites them.

WOJCIECH STAROŃ was born in 1973 in Poland and studied at the Łódź Film School. His works explore the theme of cultural identity, language, and the sense of belonging. Having worked as a cinematographer on international productions, Brothers is Staroń’s feature-length debut. It premiered at the Locarno International Film Festival 2015 and received the Golden Dove at DOK Leipzig in 2015. // Films (selection): Syberyjska lekcja (Siberian Lesson, 1998, doc), Argentyńska lekcja (Argentinian lesson, 2011, doc), Bracia (Brothers, 2015, doc)
