In author's view a film can be perceived as one of the ways of thinking about the past and representing it. In this case a movie is an equivalent of many other ways of dealing with the past, which are different from an academic written history. He would like to suggest considering film as historiography and proposes to work out new devices for film analysis that would exempt film from rules demanding for written history. In this context the movie 'Arizona' directed by Ewa Borzecka is considered as an audiovisual historical narration. This movie showing former workers of closed down State Farm (PGR) who being constantly unemployed became dirty, vulgar, drunk, poorly educated and reconciled with their fate, represents a piece of cultural reality. However, the author interested in ethical aspects of representing historical cultural reality in this film, asks about ethical limits of showing a human being in it. He inquires if the moral attitude of a historian or a filmmaker can exist beyond an ethical code. He is also concerned with the question whether designing of new areas of moral experience is possible outside a normative ethics.
