Workshop 1

Krakow, Poland

LIM starts out on its 2019 journey in Przegorzały – a suburban part of Krakow. For a whole week, the team and participants set up camp in the Hotel Wolski, located in Lasek Wolski Forest. The forest includes many walking paths – in Sowiniec Hill with the Piłsudski Mound, the baroque Camaldolese Monastery atop Srebrna Góra (the Silver Mountain), the zoological garden, three rocky nature reserves… – so participants will have a chance to have nice strolls. The purpose for this first workshop is clear for filmmakers: to find the core of each project, both thematically and narratively. A search for the power driving each story as well as for the unconscious demand that lies at its heart.

Long walks in the forests of Transylvania, with combined consultants and groups, help find the way…
