[Warany z Komodo], directed by Michał Borczuch, Poland 2018, 70' (English friendly)
Komodo Dragons is a film based on two parallel stories. The first focuses on a documentary style observation of a group of autistic adults living on the Farm of Life (a therapy centre near Kraków), the second is a story about young parents, Agata and Franek, who want to sacrifice their son. We get to know those living on the farm through their ordinary everyday life, work as well as behavior; the theatricalised story of Agata and Franek leads us to a lawyer’s office, in which we ask ourselves what is a sacrifice in the secular world. The director builds his film by clashing an intimate portrait of disabled people with an atypical human fantasy.
