A Square

director: Zbigniew Rybczyński
original title: Kwadrat
country: Poland
year: 1972
running time: 4 min.


An in-depth, film analysis of a series of photographs depicting the human body in motion, which Rybczyński manually "digitised" by repeatedly photographing, dividing, and overlapping individual fields with white and black squares and later adding colour filters to depict a fierce dance in jazz rotation.


Zbigniew Rybczyński (1949) is a world-renowned experimental filmmaker who was an active member of the Workshop of the Film Form (Warsztat Formy Filmowej) during his studies in Lodz in the early 1970s. A Square is his first student film.
