Jacek Blawut. Retrospective

The Abnormal / Nienormalni

Year
1990
Duration
75’
Director
Jacek Blawut

A full-length documentary, bordering on feature, about young, mentally disabled people. The film displays the gradual process of the orchestra organizer’s coming into contact with the kids, eliminating prejudices, overcoming barriers. The author’s aim was to win his viewers over, to make them sympathize with the seemingly “abnormal”; the title is of course ironic. The film received numerous awards, among them the Special Prize for the most significant event at the Polish Feature Film Festival in Gdynia, the Don Quixote Award – the annual prize of the Polish DKF Federation, the FIPRESCI Award at the festival in Manheim, and a nomination for the European Film Award.
