"Fuck, It's Biology," directed by Veronica Andersson, won the Best Documentary Award at the 21st International Student Film Festival "PiterKiT" in St. Petersburg.
The PiterKiT International Student Film Festival is organized by the St. Petersburg State University of Film and Television. The mission of the event is, among other things, the professional development of future filmmakers. Students from nearly 60 film schools from all over the world submitted their work for this year's edition.
The award in St. Petersburg is not the first one received by a film made by our Lecturer and Specialist in Film Promotion of the Warsaw Film School. The documentary has already been appreciated at festivals in Poland, including the Kameralne Lato in Radom, as well as abroad, including the Pärnu Film Festival in Estonia, and the Bushwick Film Festival in the USA.
Congratulations to the whole film crew!

FUCK, IT'S BIOLOGY
'Fuck, it’s Biology' is an intimate portrait of a famous Polish contemporary artist seen through the lens of the Swedish filmmaker. Mariusz Tarkawian has had 120 art exhibitions all over the world and yet his parents have not been to any. Veronica Andersson tries to make her first documentary and hopefully bring the family closer together.
