It’s Only/Not Only A Body… Or a Short Film About Freedom

PL, 2023, col., 82’
Polish o.v.

Italian Premiere

What if you could leave everything behind and go to see the world in your RV Camper? This is the story about living your life as a journey, fighting eating disorders, accepting your body, passion for photography and finding yourself. The film premiered in competition at the latest Krakow Film Festival.

Love thyself. This is the life credo of Zosia – a photographer, traveller and free spirit. Going round the world in her camper, she uses photography to make other women comfortable with nakedness and teaches them to love their own bodies. In front of her lens stood women who experienced eating disorders and did not accept their looks. Zosia, who has no place of her own on Earth, has been on the road since she left school at the age of 18. Freedom is a priority for her but loneliness and longing for love may sometimes jeopardise her travelling plans. The film premiered in competition at the latest Krakow Film Festival

“Me and friends of mine who decided to help me with this project believe that the subject of body positivity, eating disorders and the lack of psychological help, social ostracism due to appearance and orientation, or fighting with unnatural beauty standards should be raised in the discussion. Hence, I decided to fight by the use of art.” (M. Hytroś) (M. Hytroś)
