Director Bio

Daria Woszek graduated from the Jagiellonian University, followed by studies in theatre and film directing at the Krzysztof Kieslowski Faculty of the University of Silesia. Marygoround is her first feature film.

Director Statement

It was very interesting to find out that for my mother and my female friends alike, life started at age 50. Only after freeing themselves from the roles traditionally assigned to them, they were able to finally find true selves. Marygoround is about experimenting and searching to find one’s own way of life. It’s about the struggle to start giving your life the shape you want it to have.
