The story of Michalina Wislocka, the noted doctor who became the author of Poland’s most popular self-help book about love and sex. She made the impossible happen, opening wide the doors of Polish bedrooms. Cracking down on conservative stereotypes and omnipresent ignorance, Wislocka revolutionized the Polish sexual life, all with this one book. Dr. Wislocka’s story is told through several decades: the post-war 40’s, the Stalinist 50’s, and the Polish People Republic of the 70’s – which led to her writing and publishing “The Art of Loving”.
Born in 1976 in Warsaw. Pop singer, music producer, film director, screenwriter, composer, and arranger. Graduated from the Academy of Film and Television in Warsaw and from the Directing Department of the National Film School in Łódź. She recorded her first solo album when she was 14 years old. Her feature etude, “Wings” (Skrzydla), was screened at numerous international film festivals in cities such as Moscow, Taipei, Bologna, Barcelona, Istanbul and Paris. Her “Non-Stop Color”, made under the auspices of the Munk Studio’s ‘30 Minutes programme’, was one of three short stories that made up the omnibus film DEMAQUILLAGE (Demakijaż).
