SYNOPSIS

Jakub Skoczeń is making a biographical documentary on the famous Polish director.

CRITICAL NOTE

“This is a film portrait of one of the most outstanding European directors. This biographical documentary shows the different layers of the personality of the artist and doesn’t hide the contradictions of his nature. The confessions of Żuławski are alternated with fragments of his films, showing the twists and turns of his personal life and art.” (www.studioeverest.pl)
