Polish musician Andrzej Piaseczny recently came out out as gay and it was initiated by an excerpt from the lyrics of “Miłość” (“Love”), which is a single from the artist’s latest album. It is his intention, along with the video directors, to make this music video a voice of support for the LGBT+ community in Poland.
Written and directed by Helena Ganjalyan and Bartosz Szpak, the video is delicate and ephemeral rather than shocking and sensationalized.
Szpak says, “The key words we started working with were tenderness, closeness and naturalness. Heroes whom you like and who keep your fingers crossed for their shared happiness. We wanted to find actors who would be credible, personally involved in the case and who, through their presence, would fill the entire story with organic emotions.
Thanks to Maciek and Bartek, we have created a romantic, sensitive atmosphere. The ease with which they interacted allowed, despite the short filming period, to create a subtle on-screen relationship.”
