A Man That Sink His Head

Poland, 2002 (MIFF 2002, Experimental)

Director: Adam Smoczynski

With the playful combination of 3,500 images taken on separate pinhole cameras and a dissonantly commanding soundtrack, A Man That Sink His Head manages to dive onto the screen with an irrepressibly rhythmic charm.
