An experimental documentary that refers to a structure of image by an indirect usage of existing materials by a re-registration of the displayed image. Work basing on archive materials from the war and pre-war time Warsaw is processed with maintenance of author’s distance. The structural methods in use allow to modify time and space. The film’s basic theme is a question about possibility of creating modern vision of history and attempts of changing its course depending on individual interpretation.
