Łukasz Maciejewski, film critic recommands “Talking..”

The “Talking to Grandma” on-line project by Ula Zawadzka combines a friendly form of a subtle humoresque with an implicit yet important social message. In a short (thus in line with the social media requirements) and funny form, she reminds us about the necessity and value of drawing on the experience, class and beauty of the previous generations. I’m a supporter of the series and its authors.
