“Fugazi – the center of the universe” is a documentary-animated film depicting the short but turbulent history of one of the first private, independent music clubs in free Poland, recognized at that time as the largest such place in Central and Eastern Europe. The film combines in a synthetic way archival recordings of concerts, conversations with artists and perfectly matched animations of Marcin Podolec, which were created on the basis of the comic book “Fugazi Music Club” translated and published in seven countries around the world. This is a 40-minute trip to crazy times in the early 90s of the last century, which are for many people the best time in their life.
