Czy potwory jedzą kiwi [Do Monsters Eat Kiwis] tells the story of an eight-year-old Tomek, who has to face a huge problem. A monster has taken up residence in his wardrobe - and not just any monster. It is dangerous, mysterious and rather greedy. The boy has to get rid of the unwanted guest before it devours someone from his family or himself. In the main role, we will see the extremely talented Gustaw Kramin, in the role of his brother - one of the most interesting actors of the young generation - Mateusz Więcławek.
Congratulations to our student Paweł Podolski!
