Kieślowski’s graduation film, made under the artistic mentorship of Kazimierz Karabasz. The working title was The People of Łódź. This documentary, filled with interesting observations not to mention its fair share of humour, is a multifaceted portrait of Łódź, where Kieślowski studied at the film school from 1964 to 1969. Toilworn women, the textile workers of Łódź, appear on the screen, as do Sunday-afternoon strollers, Edward Ciuksza’s well-known mandolin orchestra, a folk fête, old apartment buildings and new, high-rise estates. Images of work, rest and boredom intertwine.
