officer, Zuza Wasiluk, starts working in the archive. Initially, she considers the elderly gentleman a freak
but quickly changes her mind. Henryk makes Zuza a secret accomplice in criminal investigations. Later
on, they are both involved in their work with Tomasz Stachura, a police officer who has a crush on Zuza.

ALTERED STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS (ODMIENNE STANY ŚWIADOMOŚCI), 2020, 61’
A documentary film about the possibilities of our brain. A poetic journey deep into the world of thoughts of
people with autism and Asperger’s syndrome. Where do the boundaries of our minds lie, and how much
does culture confine or even extinguish our creativity in everyday life and even in love? In the film, we
meet people of various ages who experience autism to differing degrees on the spectrum of the illness.
With some, there is practically no contact at all, whereas others at first glance give the appearance of
being “healthy.” Each of our subjects is a separate world and a unique means of seeking his or her own
path in life.
