The film “Bad Lyrics” by Marcin Maziarzewski got two awards at the Spanish festival FILMETS BADALONA FILM FESTIVAL, during which – as the organizers tell us – over ten thousand film devotees appeared.

The short feature film “Bad Lyrics” by Marcin Maziarzewski, the winner of, among others, the Polish Short Movies Competition at the ERA New Horizons festival in Wroclaw in 2010, Golden Tadpole at the Cameraimage Festival 2009, won the VENUS DE BADALONA award for the best short feature film at the 36th FILMETS BADALONA FILM FESTIVAL. Even more, Grzegorz Mielczarek, who played the main role in Maziarzewski’s film, was named the best actor, winning the “Friends of Zorilla theatre” award.

“Bad Lyrics” is a story about the tragic-comical struggle with one’s own limitations in search of relationship with another human being. The main protagonist, Piotr, suffers from a rare disease – Tourette syndrome – whose symptoms include, among others, screaming involuntary curses and insults.

The film “Bad Language” was made by the Krzysztof Kieślowski Radio and Television Faculty at the University of Silesia in Katowice and was co-financed by the Polish Film Institute.

Marcin Maziarzewski is a scriptwriter and director of short feature and documentary films. In addition, he assisted, among others, Magdalena Piekorz at the film “Sleepiness” and at the performance of “Crazy Lucy” in Juliusz Słowacki Theatre in Krakow.

35th edition of FILMETS BADALONA FILM FESTIVAL took place from 5th to 13th November.
