Production Notes:


The film imports paintings into digital 3D combined with both CG animation and visual special effects to create a mesmerizing aesthetic experience, set to a specially-commissioned full choral and orchestral score. It dramatically merges literature, painting, music and animation.

From the beginning, The Lost Town of Switez has been conceived without dialogue; the music would be its voice and drive the emotional impact of the film. As a starting point for composer Irina Bogdanovich, director Kamil Polak designed a two-meter-long visual narrative of the rise and fall of the dramatic action of the film, and pasted on references to paintings as the inspiration for particular scenes. Bogdanovich had to compose music which reflected the two periods of the film, and which was suitably epic and mysterious for a tale of destruction and miracles. Her composition is in the Romantic Russian tradition, to which she brings a modern feel. Also important to the film is choral music in the medieval Eastern Orthodox Church tradition. The score has been recorded for several of the key sections of the film using a full orchestra and choir, which imparts a very encompassing and epic sound.

Release date is that of screening at the Las Palmas International Film Festival.
