Paweł Łoziński

Episode 1

 

Paweł Łoziński’s film style gives his figures plenty of time and space. But on the other hand, the tenacity of the camera’s gaze gradually reveals the true motivations behind human behavior. His films are subtle and critical views of modern Polish society.

 

1965 born in Warsaw/Poland

1992 graduated from the National Filmschool in Lódz (directing)

Stylistyka filmów Pawła Łozińskiego polega na tym, że autor daje swoim bohaterom wiele czasu i przestrzeni. Z drugiej strony, wnikliwe spojrzenie kamery stopniowo odkrywa prawdziwe motywy ludzkich zachowań. Jego filmy są subtelnym lecz krytycznym obrazem współczesnego społeczeństwa polskiego.
