Oliver Thacker - "The Star Diaries"
I was recently exposed to Polish Science Fiction in the form of the book "The Star Diaries" by Stanislaw Lem.

“Little Monster is a small animation about my type one diabetes and the troubles I face whilst having it and dealing with day-to-day life. It shows step-by-step, the day I found out that I had type one diabetes and how hypoglycaemia and hyperglycaemia can affect my mood and ability to do certain tasks.
