JANKA

This portrait of Janina Ochojska, Head of the Polish Humanitarian Action, shows, above all, her private face. It is revealed by the narration of the protagonist herself and animated pictures inspired by her memories and illustrated with Grzegorz Turnau’s music. The story of her first kiss, the study of astronomy, youth marked with polio and the documentation of visits to countries engulfed in hunger and conflicts make threads of the same story, one about a sensitive human being, open to the world and assertive in her actions.
