‘Jozio is an 85-year-old man who is living with this 18-year-old dog ‘Krecia’ in an old house outside a small village in southern Poland.
‘This place has been Jozio’s home for over 50 years. Soon this chapter will be closed. Due to existential needs the house will be sold and he will have to move in with his younger sister in a bigger village.
‘Whenever I visit him I feel that this place belongs to a different time-zone untouched by today’s fast life. The first things that come to my mind are silence, the smell of old furniture and the traces of a long life.
‘In the context of fast changing Poland, it’s westernization, the growing abyss between past and modern generations, Jozio’s life represents for me the one of a dying species. His existence is floating between past and present.’
