Adam Mickiewicz is known (at least from the name) to all Polish. He is classical author from 19th century, and in theory his works are read during Polish language classes. He wrote some ballads, with fantasy motives and today I’ll write about one of them. Or rather about it’s adaptation.

There is a ballad called Świteź, but probably less known than Świtezianka, which has for sure English translations.

Based on the ballad, Kamil Polak directed an animated film (around 20 mins long). Below is the trailer:

Like The Cathedral, this animation also got awards. I recommend watching the film, if you have a possibility.

If you’re browsing from Poland, until 7th June, you can watch the whole film for free on Vod.pl (Cracow Film Festival section).
