Director Statement

„It wasn't me!” is the diploma film of the students of Academy of Film and Television in Warsaw – me as director and my friend as film editor. Based on my own screenplay, it's an attempt to show situation of semi-fantasy character living in real world (well known from Western and Asian popculture) set in Polish realties, as well as kind of a little ironic fairy tale for adults.
