Bio Director: 

Maciej J. Drygas is a director of documentaries and radio dramas, born in 1956 in Lódź. Immediately after completing his studies in the Directing Department of the Moscow All-Russian State Institute of Cinematography (WGIK), he became an assistant of Krzysztof Zanussi and Krzysztof Kieślowski. He debuted as a documentary director with a piercing morality play: the film Usłyszcie mój krzyk / Hear My Cry, which won many awards at festivals all around the world. His second film, Stan nieważkosci / Weightless, which speaks of the 'human' losses of the spatial conquest, was also well received. He continues to make films and is also the director of the radio drama section of the Reportage Laboratory at Warsaw University.
