Marcin Polar - 14 mins | Poland, 2019

This visually stunning, claustrophobic short film descends to a place that has never before been entered by a human being: a cave system high in the Polish Tatra Mountains. We experience how it must feel to descend into the unknown darkness and hold your breath to be able to crawl through the narrowest crevices.
