Pecha Kucha

I was invited to give a lecture at the Pecha Kucha Night. I will speak about "Hens" - aggressive old women. The speech is based on my project "Hens" about aggressive Polish women, but for the Pecha Kucha I have extended it to German and Turkish women, so it has more local aspect. Pecha Kucha is a cool thing - you give a lecture, you have only 20 images in your presentation and only 20 seconds for each image. Total length of such a lecture is 6.40 minutes.
