Our Oscar-nominated movie will be available to a wider audience again soon. "The Dress", the short directed by Tadeusz Łysiak, is coming to HBO Max!
"The Dress", the movie of our students, created out of passion, has come a long way before the world heard about it. Ultimately, it resulted in a nomination from The Academy and incredible publicity. Now the American media conglomerate, WarnerMedia, bought rights to the short from the Warsaw Film School and will soon make it available on the HBO Max platform, which also entered Poland on March 8.

Poster of "The Dress" by Plakiat
Julia lives in the Polish countryside. Her music is death metal. Her favorite pastime: playing on slot machines. She works at a wayside motel for drivers. She’s lonely, she never had a man, never experienced physicality. Julia is short stature and her entire life is dictated by her height – the local community can’t seem to accept her different appearance. Everything changes, when she crosses paths with a handsome truck driver. Their eyes meet. Julia’s heart beats faster. The man soon becomes the object of her loving, almost erotic obsession...
