I offer a broad variety of documentary films. Life memoirs, important birthdays, wedding anniversaries and any other occasion.
All projects are completely individual.
The length of the film would depend on the theme and your preferences. Please contact me to receive a quote by following
the “Contact” section on this website.
Our phone conversation will be free and informal. Once I know more about the type of occasion, the number of people involved and your preferences,
I will be able to set the price.
The film productions I make usually last between 20 mins and 1.5 hours.
My grandmother Kazimiera Bieniawska is my inspiration.
She turns 92 years old in 2017. She raised me in Poland in a spirit of patriotism, freedom and respect. She is an extraordinary person who remembers her life events very well.
In February 1940, along with her parents and five siblings, she was sent to the Siberian work camps. After a month-long journey in an animal train with almost no food, water or facilities, along with hundreds of thousands of other Polish and Ukrainian families, she arrived in Siberia. There, for two and half years, starving, she worked in the most humiliating and de-grading conditions in forests, chopping trees and building roads. Due to the change in the political situation in 1943, Poles in Siberia were free to migrate. Many of them were called to the army, as my grandmother was, and she joined the Polish Emilia Plater 1st Independent Women’s Battalion.
When I talked to her I realized how lonely she was, as all her friends have passed away and how many older people treasure a simple conversation, and the opportunity to recount stories from their lives. I would like to witness and record those conversations and stories for their families, communities and other generations. My film about her, taken from almost 3 hours of footage, has just been completed. It is going to be kept as a family treasure and sent to various museum and documentary film festivals.
