(SELF)THERAPEUTIC DIMENSION OF MARCIN KOSZALKA'S 'FAMILY FILMS ((Auto)terapeutyczny wymiar filmow Marcina Koszalki)
Languages of publication
The author analyses Koszalka's three documentaries which are the part of a set of so-called family trilogy: 'Takiego pieknego syna urodzilam', 'Jakos to bedzie' and 'Ucieknijmy od niej', treating them as if a director's selftherapy. In every single film the director is, at the same time, a creator, a main character and an inciter of events. Koszalka creates unusually personal, auteur, authentic cinema often on the brink of psychodrama and his selftherapy, which he openly admits to, does not rule out viewer's therapy for whom, his work might turn out to be difficult but really needful lesson. Since the author creates significant and revealing films and any fact in these pictures is only individual - a seemingly narcissistic director does not work only for himself, he does not try to explain certain phenomena only and exclusively for himself, he does not fulfil only his ambition and therapeutic needs.
