"Satan Said Dance" is an Instagram film in times of the selfie. A kaleidoscope of moments from Karolina - a scandalous writer obsessed with parties, drugs, sexuality and complex relationships, on her way to self-destruction…
Karolina, 27, has three boyfriends, a sister who wants to be like her, and emotional ties to her parents. Yet her story is about egotism and loneliness. A film about how easy it is to focus on one’s own ego and why egotists have such a need to see their reflection in the eyes of others? Is it a mistake to demand more freedom and strive for independence, when in fact we have too much freedom, and what we really need is a feeling of belonging?
Kasia Rosłaniec (Poland, 1980) directed "Mall Girls“ which premiered in Toronto 2009 and won numerous international awards. Her second film "Baby Blues“ won the Crystal Bear for the Best Film in Generation Section of Berlinale 2013. Both films were Box-office hits in Poland with 1 million admissions combined.
