Good news come from the frosty Alaska. "Super Unit" by Teresa Czepiec was awarded at Anchorage International Film Festival.

The first edition of Anchorage IFF was held in 2001 to promote independent cinema in Alaska, promising the viewers that the films which appear in the festival programme are "worth freezing for." This year, the second award in the short film category went to Teresa Czepiec for her film "Super Unit."

Super Unit is a huge block of flats designed, according to the idea by Le Corbusier, as a "machine for living."  On 15 floors of the building, up to 13 thousand people can live. The lift stops every third floor, so the inhabitants have to go through a real labyrinth of corridors and stairs to reach their flats. The main protagonists of the film are people living inside the Super Unit and experiencing important moments of their lives there. 762 apartment doors and 762 stories. The film opens only some of them.
