It is a music movie, which is a cross-sectional portrait of traditional and folk music society. The project is based on short feature video clips with the participation of numerous Polish bands. The movie takes us on a moving, magical trip to contemporary Warsaw, during which the audience can meet musicians in daily, sometimes less ordinary situations. The linking character of the story is a small girl – Emilka, who becomes a metaphorical guide of the story for the audience. Authors of the project created their own particular film language. Every scene is shot in a symbolic and abstract film convention. The most important aspect of the movie is showing the authenticity of the music, as well as the energy, passion and uniqueness of the particular band. Bandmasters shows to what extent the Polish traditional music culture can be contemporary, intriguing and engaging.
