But Everyone Else Was Crying
directed by Krzysztof Bagiński, Poland 2020, 7'
- The film takes as a point of departure a Czech folktale telling the story of Little Mouse, whose tragic drowning unfolds a chain of self-destruction amongst other organic and inorganic beings. In the film, the voice of performer Thelma Sharma recites the story against the backdrop of a new protagonist, Cynthia; a blind and deaf cat.
- But Everyone Else Was Crying is based on an original folktale from the Kyjovsko region in Czech Republic, as written down by Jiří Kolář, and later modified and translated to polish by author Konrad Góra as a part of his book, Nie (Biuro Literackie, 2016). English translation by Adam Repucha and Billy Morgan.
