"Arena", a fiction short film by Martin Rath, a final year direction student, gets the best short film prize at the 17th ARPA International Film Festival in Los Angeles (14-16 November).

Martin Rath made the film based on his own screenplay with photography by Bartosz Świniarski, starring Marcin Kowalczyk (who also played the part of "Magik" in "Jesteś Bogiem" by Leszek Dawid).

The film was made under the artistic supervision of Mariusz Grzegorzek and Ryszard Lenczewski. It is the unusual story of a young hitch-hiker who joins a group of strong, original and charismatic inhabitnants of the Bieszczady Mountains. Fascinated by them and the surrounding wilderness, the young man decides to face the challenge.
