Beyond The City Park

2023 short film - documentary / non-human narrative

Julia Kałużyńska
As the seasons are changing, a flock of 500 sheep leaves their urban refuge behind in search of greener pastures. Unseen paths unravel as their journey challenges our gaze, revealing the resilient spirit of transhumance.

More than a documentary, this film artistically dives into the often overlooked lives of sheep, presenting them as the heroes of their journey and transcending typical narratives by syncing with their rhythms. The film serves as a window into a different way of life, one that demands a unique form of attention to the needs of the sheep.

“The jury shows its awe for the achievement of director Tomasz Kulpiński with his deeply empathetic sheep documentary Beyond the City Park . The chosen perspective is that of a human being who pretends to be a sheep and looks at and looks back at his fellow sheep with interest. Completely without words, an understanding is cultivated between the two different types of beings.”

The Nature Film  

2021 short documentary - wdka

If gardens are the answer, what is the question?

A short documentary about a permaculture garden in Rotterdam. Exploring the connection between our culture and what we call nature.

What is nature? Are we a part of it or apart from it?
What are the interconnections between the human and non-human?

An article in The Guardian cought my attention:

In CONTAINER ROMANTIK I am looking to find the industrial charm of Elbstrand in the reflections of Hamburg’s beachgoers.

EUROBROUWERS - From Europe, with Love!

instagram branded video 2024


A man walks into a brewery and is faced with a difficult choice.


There are two strengths of Eurobrouwers that we
want to portray in this commercial. The first one is
the variety of beer, which allows for the experience
of drinking beer to become a real tasting, on top of the usual social purpose.

The second strength is the pan-european
character of the menu, as well as, of the visitors.
We amplify the image of Eurobrouwers as a
melting pot where cultures meet and cross.

I used footage from an old  DVD-R Handycam in combination with 3D scans of my neighbourhood in Warsaw.
I used dtamoshing for smoother transitions between the 3D scenes.

Connection Check

iffr shorts teaser - wdka assignment 2020


Connection Check highlights that the cinema only comes to life with an audience. It explores the path of audiovisual information: from the qualities of the moving image, to the proceses occuring in the vievers mind.

In order to highlight that the IFFR shorts programme is a celebration of film in all it’s forms, each of the five segments is shot in a different technique.

1. Animation exposed, then painted on 35mm film

2. Stopmotion paper “collage” animation

3. Stop motion animation shot with a flatbed scanner

4. Digital video footage with practical effects

5. 3D rendered animation
