Dir. by M. Romaszkan & M. Wojtowicz, Poland, 2017, 72 min.
Here is a dollar, and we are filming! Thus begins a journey into the world of resorts, optional excursions, and the rituals of mass tourism-an all-inclusive package that explores the world of the ambitions and fantasies of Poland’s middle class. The documentary is a self-portrait, a collective selfie. Using only amateur recordings, the filmmakers put them together to create a fascinating journey that, although covering different continents, follows a well-marked path staked out by the tourism industry.
