Campaign: The Mill

short movie

"The Mill" is a short psychological drama about a family dealing with the loss of one of their children. It is also the diploma film of the director Bartłomiej Jakubiak and the cinematography duo Bartłomiej Szewczyk and Marcin Rostkowski studying at the Warsaw Film School.

At the end of October 2019, we launched crowdfunding campaign for the film on Facebook. Thanks to donors, private funds and the support of the WSF, in December 2019 we were able to enter the plan and take half of the photos. The current crowdfunding campaign is intended to complete the film, which is scheduled to premiere at the end of 2020.

Synopsis: Piotr and Zofia, whose older son, Tomek, died in unclear circumstances, return to their family home after years of emigration to close old matters. During the renovation of the property, Piotr finds a new lead in the matter of the boy's death - it turns out that Tomek at the end of his life started a Paper Chase game, which may now lead his father to learn the truth about the cause of the tragedy.
