PERFORMED BY: Marika feat. Gooral
DIRECTED BY: Krzysiek Grudziński
To the generation which barely remembers (or plainly doesn’t remember) the times of communism, Polish residential blocks are a source of an endless inspiration. Krzysiek Grudziński aestheticizes the post-Soviet environment, which until recently only reminded everyone of the previous political climate. The city’s surprising beauty is a background for the characters we all know from our neighborhoods – the tracksuit-wearing thugs, the half-naked neighbour who likes to grill and the lone playing kids. But as Marika says, our environment is our doing. It’s up to us to find the energy to change it. In the video’s optimistic finale, the walls in our heads break and release a wave of color – “this power you cannot tame”.
