Common themes in Artur’s films include complicated relationships between generations and the inner strength and the perseverance of the human mind. The world in his stories might be dark and despairing, but the characters that populate it ends up on top because they believe in something, are optimistic and ready to change for the better to overcome the grim surroundings.Artur’s films also often include a fantastical dimension; he believes strongly that the main task of films is to take the audience out on a journey – to an extraordinary place where they can encounter experiences out of this world.
