UNDERGROUND ABSOLUTE FICTION

(In Development)
An interdisciplinary docu-fantasy

A novice filmmaker struggles to shoot and befriend a scrappy queer punk band amidst the rising protest movements of 2020 Poland, including the Polish Stonewall and Womens' Strike.

Rooted in Anais' attempts to reconcile their Polish heritage with the deeply fraught situation of queer people in Poland, UAF asks whether identity can bridge cultural divides, or if it's a site of Western imperialism.
