Baltic amber, often found in the Gulf of Gdańsk, is one of many highly valued decorative stones. Since time immemorial, it has been used in trade, decorative arts and jewellery. Because so-called Baltic gold is a natural organic substance, it comes in different shapes, sizes and hues.
During a workshop in Sopot, students of Leon Schiller National Higher School of Film, Television and Theatre in Łódź created multidimensional projects touching upon topics such as contemporary spiritualism, a portrait of the local queer community, “big brother” surveillance, as well as real and digital nature. They have also asked questions such as “What will he do when there are no waves?” or “What will happen when the sea is gone?”. Each of these stories, like Baltic amber, was moulded in the coastal setting and sparkles with its uniqueness. Take them with you, my dear friend.
