Viewers are piloted through the consecutive stages of Brătescu's artistic endeavours reflected in her drawings, collages and projects presented on screen.

ALINA SZAPOCZNIKOW
Każde dotknięcie zostawia ślad. Alina Szapocznikow (Every touch leaves a trace. Alina Szapocznikow)
2009 / 49 min
Director: Joanna Turowicz, Anna Zakrzewska
Producer: Anna Drozd, OpArt Productions
Language: Polish

 

The film tells the story of Alina Szapocznikow's life and artistic creativity. People close to the artist, e.g. Annette Messager, Olivier O. Olivier, Claudine Martin, Francoise Collin, Michelle Zahorska, Wojciech Fangor or Krzysztof Teodor Toeplitz, were invited to collaborate on this unique, intimate portrait of the artist. The picture which emerges from the stories about Szapocznikow, her art and attitude towards the creative process is not only that of a beautiful and exceptional artist, but also, even more importantly, that of a woman whose art is full of references to the experience of war and the Holocaust, fighting with a disease and her own corporality, as well as a dire need of artistic expression.
