SYNOPSIS:
Our Curse is the director's personal story about himself and his wife as they learn to live with their newborn son Leo's rare medical condition. The disease is called Ondine's curse, scientifically referred to as Congenital Central Hypoventilation Syndrome, causing the sufferer to stop breathing when he or she falls asleep, and there's no cure for it. Director Tomasz Sliwinski uses the camera as a diary in which visits to the hospital, the first day at home, the first outing and other daily activities are interspersed with scenes in which he and his wife voice their thoughts and fears. Gradually, their existential considerations disappear and we only see images like in the home movies of any "normal" family.
