How to Live


CATALOGUE TEXT
“Big Brother” at the camping site: a competition for the best family is announced at the company camping holiday. The prize: a washing machine. A jury observes the parents’ behaviour. But director Marceł Łoziński has smuggled in a few troublemakers to provoke the socialist petty bourgeois. A scathing social comedy and documentary transgression.
