A story of elderly poet, who continues working despite being almost completely blinded has been making rounds on international festival circuit. Having visited Paris for the ECU European Independent Film Festival and Netherlands for Go Short International Short Film Festival, among others, "Invisible" is now heading for the Americas. Director Zofia Pręgowska will be taking the film to Mexico for the Fic Monterrey International Film Festival at the end of August. It is also in the official selection of DOCUTAH in St. George, UT and DocuWest International Film Festival in Denver, CO.
Congratulations to Zosia, and we're keeping our fingers crossed for more awards!
The documentary follows the almost blind, elderly Krystyna, as she is preparing for a performance of her poetry. Eloquent in her writing, and undeterred in her pursuit of independence, the author keeps a life of reliance at bay.
