21 x Nowy Jork (21 x New York)

Piotr Stasik’s 21 x Nowy Jork (21 x New York) is an attempt to address the human condition based on the stories of 21 protagonists on the New York subway. The result is a film essay about the search for the meaning of existence and a mesmerising portrait of a city that brings together various races, cultures and viewpoints, even if individuals are increasingly removed from one another.

Developed within the framework of DOK.Incubator and Doc Lab Poland and presented in Krakow at the fourth edition of Docs to go! and in Wrocław at Polish Days, 21 x Nowy Jork (21 x New York) had its premiere as the opening film at the 56th Krakow Film Festival. Piotr Stasik wrote, directed and lensed the film. The documentary was produced by Lava Films (Agnieszka Wasiak).
