The Polish director Stanislaw Mucha lives and works in Germany. Stanislaw makes films about Europe and what is thought to be Europe. Bizarre figures and amusing stories populate his films and, despite all the absurdities, Mucha manages to avoid making the protagonists appear ridiculous. He has created documentaries such as those filmed in the Carpathian Mountains on the trail of the pop icon Andy Warhol (ABSOLUTE WARHOLA) and the search for the middle of Europe (THE CENTER). He shot his first feature HOPE in Poland, which celebrated its premiere at the Moscow and Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
