SynopsisNO PEACE WITHOUT WAR is a film about Ewa and Piotr Sosnowski, brother and sister, living together since the death of their father. It is meant to be the story of a forgotten world that takes place behind the door of a tworoom apartment in Krakow, Poland. Comprehending Ewa and Piotr‘s past and present simply through facts is almost impossible. At a certain moment everything falls into a misty and mysterious cloud where real and invented memories become indistinct. The more we get to know them facts become trifling and unsubstantial. The only sure thing is that they live in extreme poverty but they never complain about it.
Insight and unique access to this story is made possible through the eyes and understanding of Italian photographer-filmmaker Lorenzo Castore (Mario Giacomelli Prize 2003, Leica European Publisher Award 2005) and the visual approach of experimental documentary filmmaker Adam Cohen. In collaboration with Austrian composer and guitarist Christian Fennesz.
