dir. FILM SCHOOLS FROM LODZ & ISRAEL, Poland, Israel, 2016-2019, 62 min

“In the footsteps of…” -- is an ongoing project of Sapir Collage in Sderot and Łódź Film School. The goal of this project is the cooperation of animation students of both schools and creation of short animated etudes made with the use of different techniques. During these artistic meetings participants will use motives deriving from the art of canonic authors, whose work had a significant impact on Polish and Jewish culture. Until now four workshops took place alternately in Łódź and Sderot, in the south of Israel. Applied techniques combine traditional animation methods (cartoon, paper-cut, doll, photoanimation) with modern digital techniques (3D animation, compositing, CG special effects). Created films concern the lifework of Bruno Schulz, Stanisław Lem, Hanoch Levin and since last year poets Wisława Szymborska and Dan Pagis have also become an inspiration.

„Promised land" - is a project created in 2018 by students of Łódź Film School and Sapir Collage in Sderot. As a result of the workshops directors and cameramen made few short documentaries showing what fascinated or astonished them after they had come to Israel. Young filmmakers paid special attention to social and political poblems. Their subjects became a starting point to the reflection on idea of the Promised Land, the name of Israel and the name of Łódź in the past.

„Łódź-Jerusalem: the rhythm of two cities"
In June 2019 5 students of the Directing Department of The Ma’aleh School of Film and Television in Jerusalem came to Łódź and couple of weeks later students of Łódź Film School flew to Jerusalem. The goal of this trips was to make documentaries with the leitmotiv: city as phisical space (with defined structure and spacial planning) and also city as social space, living tissue governed by its own rules, culture and norms. Students worked in the teams of two, helping each other and being guides for their partners in their own cities. 10 documentaries were created as a result, showing the city and its inhabitants from a foreigner's perspective.
