For years Julian Antoniszczak has fascinated audiences at various short film festivals. He is also an inventor, the constructor of everything that is here, in the attic of this tenement in Krakow. This year, once again he presents a competitive chronicle.
(off): "The difficult conditions of our country toughen and thus one can develop new techniques in painting and graphic design, having to work where there is no brush, no paint. Painter, as I was once, must himself stretch the canvas over the frame, and I don’t mind these conditions. I couldn’t live in the West, I would simply die of not being able to let off steam, because there you can buy anything in a store. No need to build yourself cars, tractors, because everything already is there, that’s why… And besides, you have to earn money for it.”
Through all of his life's work, although his is only 43 years old, Julian Antoniszczak has constructed wholly by himself, and this unique device is all his own – The Chropograph.
The chropographic camera takes pictures by capturing images with a technique that allows blind people to 'read' it with their fingertips. An invention that brings about excellent opportunities, but not one that warranted great attention. Such a pity.
