Zuza Banasinska

Created from archival materials of the Educational Film Studio in Łódź, the film tells the story of a matriarchal family through the eyes of a child grappling with the reproduction of ideological and representational systems.

Zuza Banasińska reinvents the famous Slavic witch Baba Yaga through a clever montage of films from Łódź’s Educational Film Studio, with sexist content. Questioning his own non-binarity through a troubling voiceover that tells the story of a matriarchal family, iel unleashes the queer dimension of images charged with conveying a normative conception of identity.
