STORY
An experimental short film based on a poem “People on the Bridge” (“Ludzie na moście”) written by Nobel Prize winner Wislawa Szymborska. The poem is intermingled with images of a 19th century Japanese woodblock print entitled “People on a Bridge” by Hiroshige Utagawa which provided the original inspiration for the poem. The bridge symbolizes a powerful connection between places, historical periods and cultures. Szymborska’s musings on our inability to come to terms with the infinite trajectory of time are set against the powerful image of Utagawa’s art.
