POL 2011, 25'

A documentary about the Polish meteorological rocket research programme of the 1960s and 1970s, composed of archive material from the National Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology, which were found after an arduous search. Films made with amateur cameras in laboratories and at launch sites (including the Rożnowskie Lake, in the Błędów Desert and at the former German bases near Łeba and Ustka) have been complemented with an original score (prompting nostalgic-nervous associations with the educational films of era of the People's Republic of Poland) and a commentary relating to the poetics of 1960s cinema.
