The festival will feature videos for Dorota Maslowska’s music project: Mister D., (created by Krzysztof Skonieczny), and Memoir, a”work in progress”by Krzysztof Garbaczewski.
Dorota Maslowska is a Polish novelist, playwright, and most recently a musician. She enjoyed a great deal of success with her first novel, Snow White and Russian Red (Wojna polsko-ruska pod flaga bialo-czerwona). An example of postmodernism meets post-Communism, the book earned immediate acclaim and notoriety, winning the prestigious 2003 Paszport Polityki in literature for “her personal take on Polish reality and creative use of colloquial language.” She received Poland’s highest literary honor, the Nike Prize, in 2006, at the age of 23. Since then, her plays have been staged in New York, Sydney, London, Berlin, Prague, Moscow, Chicago, and throughout Poland.
