Director Bio

Kasia Rosłaniec is a Polish director. She graduated from the Warsaw Film School, then attended The Andrzej Wajda Master School of Film Directing. In 2008, she wrote and directed her feature debut Mall Girls, for which she has received numerous awards at international festivals. Her film Baby Blues won Crystal Bear for the Best Film at the Berlinale 2013.


Style is the most strident facet of Katarzyna Rosłaniec’s oeuvre. In Galerianki (2009) and Bejbi Blues (2012) she revelled in the alluring chasm between modern Polish materialism and an austere societal morality. Satan Said Dance weds these representations of post-1990 Polish youth culture with a formal design that is sleek and ultra-modern. Karolina, played by Rosłaniec’s muse Magdalena Berus, is a pop journalist perpetually searching out the surface of the scene. Her quest is presented through a series of succinct, colour-coded vignettes that range from the comic to the calamitous.

Contains flashing images.
