[ŻEBY NIE BYŁO ŚLADÓW]
Based on a true incident, this Kafkaesque tale of police brutality and the state-sanctioned coverup that followed feels as blisteringly relevant today as it did when it shook Poland in 1983. Refusing to provide his papers, high school student Grzegorz is beaten to death by militia. His best friend Jurek (Tomasz Zietek, CORPUS CHRISTI, SILENT NIGHT) was the only witness and quickly becomes enemy number one for the oppressive regime. He will have to fight with everything he has to reveal the truth and honor his friend's memory, even in the face of blackmail and an intimidation campaign. Filled with powerful performances by a roster of top-tier talent (including Robert Wieckiewicz, WALESA: MAN OF HOPE and Tomasz Kot, COLD WAR), this is a harrowing and important portrait of a crucial moment in Poland's history from rising Polish filmmaker Jan P. Matuszyński (THE LAST FAMILY). Official Selection, 2021 Venice and London film festivals. DIR Jan P. Matuszyński; SCR Kaja Krawczyk-Wnuk, from the book by Cezary Lazarewicz; PROD Leszek Bodzak, Aneta Cebula-Hickinbotham. Poland/Czech Republic/France, 2021, color, 160 min. In Polish with English subtitles. NOT RATED
