Polish Self-Portrait

Oct 13 — Oct 31, 2021

Dirs. Jakub Droczyński, Maciej Białoruski, Robert Rawłuszewicz. Poland. 2021, 113 mins. In Polish with English subtitles. Marriages are ending. Lives are running out. At least I can “talk to you” says Peter, who has been living in isolation for a month in his own apartment, waiting for a vaccine that will cure him—and everyone—from the virus of loneliness. At home, they have been recording personal scenes from their lives, hoping that someone will listen. Polish Self-Portrait is a kaleidoscopic, subjective, crowd-sourced record of life under lockdown in Poland during the COVID-19 era.  New York premiere
