VOLTA

Dirs: Monika Kotecka, Karolina Poryzała
Poland – 2017

Zuzia (12) has been training vaulting for two years and has an extraordinary role topping the acrobatic pyramid. She is a “flyer” lifted by the stronger and more experienced vaulters. Another intensive season begins. During the training sessions it becomes apparent that the girl has lost some of her grace and lightness. At first the coach blames the lifters but they admit that Zuzia is now too big to lift. It becomes clear that she is “just growing” and her role is given to a younger girl.

Duration: 14:00
