Grzegorz Brzozowski wins award at Polish Film Festival

A big congratulations to CCS Pre-doctoral Fellow Grzegorz Brzozowski, the director of the best documentary film winner, A Stranger On My Couch, at the 57th Krakow Film Festival.

What happens when Poles find themselves in close encounters with representatives of other cultures? An internet hospitality network leads to strangers dropping in on Polish households. What are they looking for in their meetings? Is one night enough to fill the void in one’s life – or can it make it even more painful?
This is a 52’ documentary by Grzegorz Brzozowski, produced by Studio Munka, shot throughout the real-life, first-time meetings between strangers connected by an internet hospitality network.
