In Alejandro Moreno Jashés' Black Parrots, the protagonist's eyes at the moment of ecstasy or a heart attack refuse to cooperate and, turning their backs on the world, begin their journey deep into the human body.

These are Wyspiański's words from his Study on Hamlet, written feverishly in several days – a work that constitutes a source of inspiration for many Polish directors.
