    • Synopsis
    • Universam Grochów was the first shopping and service arcade that opened in Praga Południe district in Warsaw in the 70s. UNIVERSAM GROCHÓW is a documentary depicting last months of the shopping arcade before its closing. It's an attempt to show an incredible mosaic of Grochów residents at the time of significant changes. It's a story of passing, of seemingly excluded people for whom there's no place in the modern metropolis.
