The Ugliest Car

Grzegorz Szczepaniak, Poland, 2017, 47’

The youngest protagonist of the documentary is Wartburg, an automobile over 50 years of age. The car is still on the road, driven by Bogdan, who is inside it with his mother Kazimiera. This road movie which takes place between the German Nazi concentration camp of Majdanek, in occupied Poland, and a former Nazi labor factory in Germany is actually a journey into the past, retracing the memories from the war.
