DREAMLAND. A documentary about Maciej Berbeka
Poland / 2018 / 86' / Italian premiere
Stanisław Berbeka revives the memory of his father, Maciej Berbeka. Thanks to the accounts of expedition participants, the reminiscences of his family and archival recordings, we can gain a better insight into the way of thinking of this eminent Polish mountaineer and traveller. Among the stories about the family, the values he embraced and the most important expeditions, there is one related to the winter ascent to Broad Peak: on 5 March 2013, the protagonist reached the summit, but died on his way down.
Born in 1985 in Zakopane, Poland. He is a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdańsk. At present, he runs his own design studio YakYak. He collaborates on a regular basis with the Witkacy Theatre in Zakopane, the local City Hall and the Tatra Museum preparing the graphics and photography needed for cultural events. Dreamland is his film debut.
