The Cake

Sisters Ema, 100 and Zosia 94, have been living together for most of their lives. They developed a strong relationship based on task division - Zosia has always been the hostess and decision maker, while Ema would comply, the kitchen was her realm. Although their personalities are somewhat distinct, both of them are extremely hospitable and share a passion for organising feasts. In the last few years, their situation has been changing with their gradual loss of vision causing increasing difficulties. Nevertheless, the sisters do not want to resign from being active. So they take on a challenge as big as making a walnut cake.

Director Biography - Małgorzata Goździk

I am an artist, traveler and performer based in Poland, Silesia.
I completed MA in painting from Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow. In the third year of studies I started to base my works on meeting with people. I also started to make dance performances in a public space of various European cities. These searches, connected with psychological interest and movement, led me to use a medium of film. As a result I have made a short documentary film “The Cake” for my diploma work. After graduating, I mainly focus on further development in working in a documentary film.
