Impossible Figures and Other Stories II

Marta Pajek (PL)


The film portrays the story of a woman who keeps on stumbling and falling in her daily rush. When she gets up, she discovers her house has quite unexpected attributes—it’s built from paradoxes and filled with illusions. The film is the second in the triptych Impossible Figures and Other Stories inspired by the concept of impossible figures. Each of the parts tells a story about aiming for perfection and trying to fulfil yourself in a reality full of traps.
