A young girl immigrated. Having to function in a new environment is slowly transforming into a routine, and herself, into a modern Frankenstein’s creation. The new approach and behaviour no longer match the old habits and patrimonial stereotypes. The decision to reunite with family and return the feeling of comfort became a turning point and reveals the process which modern immigrants experience.

Anastazja Naumenko – animator and director of animated and experimental films. She was studying at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow and at KASK in Belgium. Her works have been exhibited in Kraków, Wrocław and Gent.
