Also this time the producers are hoping that the collaboration with a very talented director will result with an incredibly exciting project that has a huge potential to be recognized in the international market. Paralelly to the shooting we're starting a website www.sixdegrees.com, where it will be possible to follow the adventures of the crew and watch the videos from their travel made with a Nokia phone that supported the project.
SIX DEGREES is a unique film, where the protagonists are unknown until the start of the shooting. On the first day two drawings will take place. In the beginning we will draw the first protagonist of the film from the people selected by our crew. The last person in the chain will be found based on the coordinates. People randomly approached at the streets of Warsaw will draw numbers that will be the parallels and meridians on the crossing of which there will be the home of the last protagonist. In a few days after the drawing the cinematographer will go there with a camera. The first person he meets will be our protagonist that we'll try to get to. Beginning at this point we will know where he/she lives and what her/his name is.
This is exactly when the film adventure will begin. 4-people crew composed of Bartosz Dombrowski (director), Wojtek Zieliński (cinematographer), Błażej Kafarski (sound) i Kaja Domeracka (production manager) will embark on a journey to find the chain of connections between two people who are complete strangers. They will travel for about 3 months to examine how strong the relationships between human beings are and if the ideas about the others’ lives are in line with reality. In this ever shrinking world are we really closer to each other?
This film will have a deeper dimension besides its adventurous quality. First and utmost of all we would like to look closely at a human being, show how close/far away from each other we live. The makers of the film are asking themselves the following questions: Are people getting closer to each other in the times of the internet and slogans about the global village? Or maybe we're so absorbed with our own matters, work and problems that we don't even see the people around us? Do we care for our friendships? Do we find time to stop running and think about the people who used to be close to us?
The film is made with support of EBH, Cafe Ole and Oddweird Design Studio.
