Summary/Abstract: The article is an analysis of a debut, feature‑lenght film by Kuba Czekaj – Baby Bump in the perspective of transgression and Józef Kozielecki’s psychotransgression theory. Theses are based on symbolic (cutting off frozen ears, breasts, pregnancy belly; hatching) and formal (cartoon, pastel, surreal imagination) transgression indicators, which simultaneously realize the process of breaching of taboo of childhood limits. Conclusions are based on enhancers and impediments’ theory in progression’s psychology, which at the same time explain threads of fascination with corporealness, mother’s sexuality, maturation’s trauma which is intertwined with sexual normativeness.
