Jurek is 23 years old, a History student and he lives with his auntie, who does everything possible to feed and support the young man. Sick of the monotony in his life and blaming his aunt of his existential boredom, Jurek decides to change his destiny and kill her with a hammer.
This medium-length film is based on the unfinished novel of the same name by writer Andrzej Bursa. It is a story about the fight we each have with our inner demons, the power of imagination and the influence of the subconscious on our day to day actions. Killing Auntie (Zabicie Ciotki) is an absurd comedy about our lives and the options that might change the way things are laid out. Even though, somethings, whatever we do, never change.
Mateusz Głowacki (1982) studied Film Direction in the Radio and Television Department at Silesia, in Katowice, Poland. He has directed over a dozen short-length films, such as Richard (2012), When Lights of Dawn Arise (2012) and Survey about Women (2012).
Killing Auntie is part of the Official Selection of the 7th edition of the International Medium-length Film Festival La Cabina that will take place from the 6th to the 16th of November in the Filmoteca de Valencia.
