Labyrinth

France, 1969 (MIFF 1972)

Director: Piotr Kamler

Rejecting real life, with its crowds and noises, a man enters a fantastic world of extraordinary people. Soon, this world becomes more and more threatening, the man is pursued and attacked by great black birds. Not until the end do we discover what the labyrinth in which he is caught, really is.
