Cezary Hładki Wins Best Director Prize at Cannes Indies Cinema Awards

We are very happy to announce that Cezary Hładki, lecturer at SWPS University’s School of Form, won the Best Director Prize, while his film, “On a White Horse”, was named Best Narrative Short at this year’s Cannes Indies Cinema Award.

"On a White Horse" – Winner of Best Director and Best Narrative Short

“On a White Horse” is a story about fragile human relationships with Polish folk music in the background. Julia almost has it all: she has travelled the world, has an exciting job, and a good relationship with her younger sister, but she still feels unfulfilled. She is yearning for love and a relationship, however, an idealized image of her father who died many years ago, makes it difficult for her to find the right man. During summer vacation, Julia meets Szymek, who seems to be perfect. Will Julia surrender and find happiness?

The omnibus behind the film is Cezary Hładki who co-wrote (with Michał Włodarczyk) the screenplay and dialogues, directed and edited the film. He was also one of the film’s cinematographers and contributed to the soundtrack.

The film was developed under the supervision of Ewa Pytka, director, producer, screenwriter, journalist, and a university lecturer, at the Warsaw Film School.
