Co-presented with the Polish Cultural Council
A surreal fable of sorts, this drama explores what happens when a man strikes up an unlikely friendship with a beautiful, mysterious, neurotic woman. Jacek works as a webmaster to support himself and his brother, Tomek who has “savant syndrome.” They have their own comfortable routine, but it’s broken when an elderly neighbor can no longer help with Tomek. Jacek turns to the new women in their building. This intimate, stylized story of three entirely different people, each alienated in some way, is told without hyperbole and plays out in an atmosphere bordering on the fabulous. Director Bodo Kox is scheduled to attend. (In Polish w/English subtitles)
