Superjednostka (Super Unit)

Superjednostka (Polish for Super Unit) refers to Le Corbusier and his vision of a modern architecture based on the measurements of the human body. A gigantic housing block in the center of Katowice represents Corbusier’s vision cast in concrete, which was copied worldwide. 762 apartment doors, 762 personal stories. Teresa Czepiec’s documentary shows how the residents have appropriated the inhospitable space—the “machine for living” becomes an organism. Kasseler Dokumentarfilm- und Videofest 2015
