Film Synopsis

"House Without a Key is a second experimental short by Marta Skoczeń, a young photographer and filmmaker living between Poland and France. It's a visual essay on a female desire for emotional freedom. The artist uses a variety of visual and poetic means of expression to create an ambiguous atmosphere of calmness and waiting. Shot entirely in black and white on HDV cassettes, the film provokes a dialogue both with the weight of the past itself as well as its technologies."
