The film was inspired by one of the most important documentaries shot by Krzysztof Kieślowski, “Talking Heads” (1980). The director asked his interlocutors seemingly simple questions, such as “Who are you?” and “What do you want?” Have those existential problems lost their validity over the last forty years? What are the answers to Kieślowski’s questions in 2021, the time of globalization, social media and modern communication technologies, but also lockdown, quarantines and social distancing? To find out, we asked these questions to filmmakers, friends and collaborators of Krzysztof Kieślowski and those who value him and his work. The film was shot during the pandemic. Instead of a traditional camera, lights and sound, the authors used video streams, computer and smartphone cameras and headsets.
