Summary/Abstract: The author presents the film directed by Paweł Łoziński, Place of Birth (Miejsce Urodzenia,1992), in the categories of a multidimensional memory place, which, as a sort of workdone on the material of the past, can be characterized by definition as an object in action,a performative. She describes the movie using the concepts of affect, trauma culture andcollaborative authorship. The movie is presented as: a comparative place of memory, anarchive, trauma experience catalyst, trauma translator, a performative shaping a non-memoryplace into a mnemotopos – depending on the perspective/status of the author instance.
