THEIR VOICES

POLISH TITLE: PROSZĘ O CISZĘ

REPRESENTED BY KFF

In her movie Eri Mizutani invites us to experience mysterious world, carefully hidden from us behind the walls of the polish boarding school. The young students have their own magic world, hardly accessible for the others, the "normal" ones. By a subtle observation and without a spoken word we access their everyday life throughout the year. Getting to know their habits, gestures and facial expressions we access the environment full of acceptance, understanding and airiness - so different from the world outside. Film allows us to share the childrens’ emotions, their visions of the world and eventually, to hear their voices.

Eri Mizutani in her movie transgresses hard to cross communication barriers between the worlds of adults and children, deaf and hearing.

Eri Mizutani »

 I was born in 1984 in Kyoto. In 2009 I graduated from TAMA Art University. During my studies I directed five movies. The first one, „Ki-ka” was made in 2006 and got the Special Jury Prize during the 29th Pia Film Festival. The third one „It’s kind of ill”, made in 2008. It was screened in the movie theatre UPLINK in Tokyo.

Since 2010 I study in the Leon Schiller National Higher School of Film, Television and Theatre in Łódź. In 2013 I directed the documentary “Zostanie tylko pragnienie” and the short film „Niewidomi”. In 2014 I directed the documentaries „Śni mi się” and „Ciemna przestrzeń”. The same year I also took part in the staging of the Japonese-inspired theatre play „Niespełniona miłość”. Nowadays I am directing theatre workshops for young people in partnership with the foundation Ai, preparing two theatre plays: „Romeo and Juliet” and „Poszukiwanie miłości” (Academic Center of Artistic Initiatives in Lodz).
