Tuning Instruments

Poland, 2000 (MIFF 2001, Animation)

Director: Jerzy Kucia

Described by its maker as 'film poetry'. Tuning Instruments is driven by a haunting, dissonant soundscape and ceaseless­ly morphing images where every shift of gear is a change in mood and style. Forcefully emotive and technically inspired filmmaking.
