Dorota Murzynowska

Dorota Murzynowska absolwentka Animacji Kultury Instytutu Kultury Polskiej Uniwersytetu WarszawskiegoThe studies were a time for formational journeys for me. I owe a lot to the participation in field work research in the Wałbrzych region under dr Tomasz Rakowski. I had been travelling to the countryside to research music, dance and meet people before, still the experience gathered in the bootleg mining puts impacted my later research and music activities. During the studies I took part a number of times in creative workshops organised by the Bielefeld University to which I owe some great friendships and inspiration for my scholarship project in Stockholm. The blend of these experiences and milieus resulted in pursuing a career in the film industry after graduation and I worked as the head of film production for eight years.
