The Essay


Andrzej Barański

1979, 0 h 18 min

A detailed psychological study of a man in his youth, at the time of adolescence. The film depicts his search for identity and answers to the most important questions a teenage boy may have. The young man’s internal monologue forms a stream of consciousness welded to a unique visual amalgam of various phenomena and life situations.
