While traveling among people and objects we discover a world usually considered as ugly and unattractive. This dream-like journey is not a dream. Who are the people in this ‘big aquarium’? And what is our attitude towards them? Is it possible to detect any visual beauty at all in empty or cluttered rooms, with their occupants of all ages running around, reading a book, brewing coffee and making noises as they move among all kinds of beeping appliances, blaring TVs and radios? This short visual journey through various households shows just how lively, unique and atmospheric these places can be. It's as if we're secretly watching different scenes in a dolls’ house. So, who are the people in this cinematic aquarium? Are they aware of us, the voyeurs? What is their relationship with each other? And how should we relate to their experimental dream journey in what is perhaps the most visually underrated of all locations – home?

Director
Paweł Ziemilski
Paweł Ziemilski, born in 1981, is a fifth-year student of Directing at the National Film School in Łódź. He also has a Master's in Sociology from the University of Warsaw. He has been dividing his time between directing short films, finishing his Master's at the Łódź School, and social film projects among different marginalized communities. This latter activity recently evolved into a fund for youth from a small village where he first started giving cinema workshops in 2009. Several of Ziemilski's documentary films deal with the places and people he has come to know through such projects.
