Anna Kulikowska, 2013 | Association of Creative Initiatives ę (Poland)

"He is tall. He is short. He loves to eat. He loves to sleep. He's a sports type. He's rather plump." This is all about Alexander. He comes from Ukraine. That's what we know about him. None of the people talking about him in the film have ever met him. The protagonist of the film by Anna Kulikowa is a young Ukranian man who wanted to take part in the Polish based remix workshop - the same workshop that the author took part in. They never met because Alexander didn't receive his visa. This video is an attempt at picturing him and his potential input to the group's work. It is also a story of absence. --------------- Produced by the Association of Creative Initiatives "ę" in 2013, Poland for Remapping Europe, a Doc Next Network project remixing prevailing imaginary of migrants. This work is part of Doc Next Network Media Collection. For more information visit www.docnextnetwork.org.
