Magdalena Kuzar, 2013 | Association of Creative Initiatives ę (Poland)
"Hi, welcome again. Long time no see!" - a young girl speaks to a webcam. This could be the beginning of one of the thousands of video manuals about make-up or fashion. It could be, but the recording won't suggest the most trendy colours. Instead we will learn to effectively smuggle alcohol and cigarettes through the border. Magdalena Kuzar, the author of this video, comes from a village close to the border. She heard stories about smuggling between Poland and Ukraine since she was a little girl. In her remix she studies the smuggler overloaded with cigarette packages and confronts him with the style of video blogs. --------------- Produced by the Association of Creative Initiatives "ę" in 2013, Poland for Remapping Europe, a Doc Next Network project remixing prevailing imaginary of migrants.
