A film portrait of Piotr Łazarkiewicz, a film director who died prematurely, made by his wife, Magdalena Łazarkiewicz. The picture is a collection of accounts given by the artist’s family members and archival statements made by the artist himself. The narration skilfully combines two dimensions: a reflection on Łazarkiewicz’s work and biographical themes. Numerous contributions and archival recordings reveal a portrait of an uncompromising artist, individualist and visionary.
