This trailer was shot at the end of summer 2010 with my friend Kinga Osada in Pierwoszow, Poland. The idea was inspired by my joyful childhood memories of the Polish Harvest Festival, an annual celebration that takes place around the time of the main harvest of a given region. It typically features feasting with foods that are drawn from crops coming into maturity at the time of the festival. During the festival croppers give thanks to God for the harvest and ask for an even better harvest next year. We used humor and visual play to bring together the Harvest festival and the Film festival in order to create a trailer that celebrates the unique and unconventional character of the SPFF.
