Here´s some more information about the campaign.

A short film depicts a day in life of a young girl seen with the eyes of her intimate partner. This persons stays hidden behind the camera, as we watch them wake up together, have morning coffee, a stroll in the park, a quiet moment of reflection. We can see them laugh together, contemplate and argue. Those scenes are accompanied by a voice over saying ‘I wake up with a stranger’; ‘I laugh with a stranger’; ‘I celebrate our fourth anniversary with a stranger’. In the last scene of the celebration in the park where family and friends are present, the camera moves away to revile that the partner of the girl is also a girl. It is their fourth anniversary, but according to the law, they are strangers.

It is explained by the reader at the end of the film – Polish law does not recognize any sorts of civil unions. The viewer is encouraged to support the recognition of civil partnership by going to the page www.PopieramZwiazki.pl. The reader says: ‘Do not let the law separate people in intimate relationships’.

Even the smallest donation matters!
