Secret of Confession is a short film that tells a story about the director’s grandma. This elderly lady is a deeply believing Christian, who is every single day confronted with bad manners and rude behaviour of Polish young people and thinks that all of them are godless. The film has been made in Szubin — the hometown of the director. It was her diploma film, made for one of Scottish universities. The film was made in completely unprofessional conditions. The “cinematographer” was Agata’s father and the film was shot with a digital reflex camera.
Secret of Confession was won the Audience Award at the FF Filmowa Góra 2011 and honourable mention in the Best Screenplay category at the Exposures Film Festival 2012. Agata Jagodzińska has also won the „British Oscar” — the highest prize in the prestigious competition organised by BAFTA, i.e. BAFTA New Talent Award for the Best Screenplay. Agata Jagodzińska has lived, worked and studied in Scotland, for a few years. This Szubin-born director has graduated from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh.
