Floating Skyscrapers / Płynace wiezowce

by Tomasz Wasilewski International Feature Film / Competition

Kuba’s life is following a usual and until now satisfactory path. This upcoming top-tier swimmer from Warsaw trains in the indoor pool and the track by day, and returns home in the evenings to the bed of his pretty girlfriend Sylwia or to placate his possessive mother Ewa. Until, that is, he meets Michal – in full view of Sylwia – at a gallery opening. Now instead of training, he spends his afternoons in the city with Michal, enjoying a friendship that soon turns to passion and love. Emotionally torn, Kuba turns his life upside down – with fatal consequences for all.
In this first ever Polish LGBT film, Thomasz Wasilewski tells the story of broken hearts and the discovery of sexual identity against the backdrop of socially rooted homophobia.
