People of Krosno

Krosno, a city nestled in the heart of Poland, is known for its rich history and culture. However, the true wealth of Krosno lies in the diversity of its people and their varying aspirations in life. This documentary explores the stories of individuals in Krosno transcending social statuses, ages, and classes.

As we roamed the streets of Krosno, we posed three simple questions to its inhabitants: "Who are you?" "What do you want from life?" and "What do you think about Krosno?" Their answers revealed the tapestry of diversity and different perspectives in this city.

While the youth look towards the future with hope, the elderly reminisce about the past. Individuals from various social statuses share their thoughts on Krosno's beauties and challenges. Some have grown up in this city, while others are recent arrivals, but all have found a place to call home in Krosno.
