Directed short films and documentaries which have been shown and awarded at major international and Polish film festivals. Her last movie “Call me Marianna” won The Golden Horn for the best film at 55 Krakow Film Festival: “Style follows the story in this sensitive, intense and complex portrayal of a brave approach to life and the steps to a new life in harmony in one's real identity. It was encouraging to see this story being told at this time. Conceptionally convincing cinematic levels make the protagonist's complex life experiences comprehensible in an intimate as well as universal way. The journey through life from man to woman in a dualistically dominated culture, the transformation from being a family man to the finally selfdetermined life as a woman throws an analytically inspired light on our society and unlocks the protagonist's extraordinary inner strength”. Karolina Bielawska is known also from “Warsaw available” (2009), “Bielińskiego 6” (2005) and short films “The end of summer” (2007), “Hotel” (2005), “Just married” (2005).
