Stanislaw Mucha takes you on an astonishing journey of 5,000 kilometers along the coasts of seven countries. Landscapes extend between Crimea and the Caucasus, the Turkish northern coast and the Danube Delta, whose magic and destruction are unique and admired. TRISTIA captures the collision of mythic images, which seem to have overcome time, with the rapid, multi-cultural changes, as determined by post-communist ideas: the megalomania highway and Olympic madness.
Stanislaw Mucha was born on May 3, 1970 in Poland. He is a director and writer, known for Absolut Warhola (2001), Die Mitte (2004) and Reality Shock (2005). He wons a lot of awards for a large part of the films he made, especially the Adolf-Grimme-Preis for Best Documentary for Absolut Warhola.
