Zuza Banasińska reinvents the famous Slavic witch Baba Yaga through a clever montage of films from Łódź’s Educational Film Studio, containing sexist content. Questioning their own non-binary identity through an unsettling voice-over that tells the story of a matriarchal family, they unleash the queer dimension of images tasked with conveying a normative conception of identity.
