The animation tries to bring the polish viewer closer to his own roots, his own coulture.The clip tells a story of a girl that refuses to get married. She feels the pressure of the society. She is trying with all her strength to oppose to the pending fate of marrying a young bachelor. The clip is inspired by the polish folklore: its tales, legends, masks and its dances. I wanted to present this story in a metaphorical way, that is why I used fictional characters and built a fairytale world. Because I dance in a folk dance group, I have contact with the polish folklore every day, and a huge inspiration to the video were the vibrant colors of the folk clothes, as well as the motif of the polish folk dance. I wanted the avant-garde interpretations of the folk music played by the Warsaw Village Band to set in smoothly with the strange, surrealistic picture. The animation is a non-literal, metaphorical reflection of the story told.

„It’s not me you bathe for anymore” is a stop-motion animation made with a use of puppets. It is based on a song of a famous polish group called “Elderly Gentlemen’s Cabaret” (Kabaret Starszych Panów). It is the main character’s lament, a man who sings about the loss of his beloved woman. He has been replaced and he is thinking about all the baths his lady of heart is taking. She is not taking them for him anymore- she is taking them for another man.
