Moje Własne Słowa

Janina lives with her oldest daughter Dana in a village, idyllically nestled between mountains and dense forests in southwestern Poland. "In My Words" follows aspects of Janina's life from the 1930s, her post-WWII life as a farmer under Communism while raising four daughters, all the way to contemporary Poland. When Dana is not in Germany working as private caretaker to supplement her pension, she cares for and argues with her mother. Bringing attention to people who live in rural areas and who tend to be either romanticized or stigmatized, this film is a meditation on place and landscape, history, personal choices and loss, and all those moments between laughter, grief, and wonder.
