15 Corners Of The World

A documentary by Zuzanna Solakiewicz | 79 min | 2014


The fifties in Poland. Eugeniusz Rudnik, engineer and farmer's son from a village near Warsaw, finds a job with the Polish Radio. He starts measuring tape recorders and eventually becomes a great artist. But he never becomes a star. All his life, bent over the sound desk, scissors in hand, he worked on hundreds of jobs every day for his radio colleagues. In between he thinks up his own works. One day he played over a lesson from a French class. Shortly afterwards he became convinced that the funny French “r” could become a sound mystery, and so the engineer became a composer and a pioneer of electronic music. In an unusual and creative way, the film immerses itself in the artist's electro-acoustic sound worlds and attempts to make them visible on film. A film about the nature of sounds and creative processes.
