Shooting Stars


It’s a midnight song about masculinity, joy and rivalry. The starting point is an observation, through which I am near a picture searching for stories, that ultimately emerge in one’s head. That night is a different one.


Magda Jaroszewicz was born in 1986 and raised in Warsaw, Poland. As a teenager, she spent a year in Australia. Back in Europe, she studied script and playwriting in Poland and France, then she graduated from Theater and Performing Arts Studies in Cracow as well as film directing in the National Film School in Lodz. Her short fiction films “The Death of a Czech Dog” (2011) and “Wild Berries” (2016) were screened at various European film festivals.

After finishing film school she moved to Berlin. Recently she researched and co-directed a Polish part of a huge project for ARTE – 24 Hours Europe. She is a scholar of the ‘Haus am See’ program where she develops her first feature film and a Berlinale Talents 2019 alumni (Script Station). She likes to combine both mediums – documentary and fiction – and is interested in identity transitions and what does the past do with the living. She has a dog.
