“Reenchantment. Małgorzata Mirga-Tas” is a documentary film by Anna Zakrzewska that records the process of creating Małgorzata Mirga-Tas’s monumental work Re-enchanting the World for the Polish Pavilion at the Biennale Arte 2022 in Venice. The artist decided to let a camera into her studio to talk about the Roma culture and the close relationships between the women she works with. Recorded conversations conducted while embroidering complement the finished work. Like the works of Mirga-Tas, the film has a patchwork form – by mixing together intimate and private scenes, it tells the rich history of the Roma community, which has been marginalized for years. The documentary also celebrates an important moment when, for the first time in the 120-year history of the Venice Biennale, the most prestigious event in the art world, the Roma artist is presenting her works in the national pavilion.
