Tribute to Andrzej Wajda

In colloration with the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Canada

A story of Wladyslaw Strzeminski, an avant-garde painter, who did not give in to socialist realism being ruthlessly enforced by Communist regime in the post-war Poland. The tragic consequences of a struggle for artistic freedom in the totalitarian system of power unfold at first slowly, but gradually lead a charismatic, defiant man into the abyss.

Afterimage becomes a multilayered, intellectual battle on a role of art and freedom of expression; a film – caution; a film about a man / an artist destroyed by the system; a film on how dangerous it is to fuse political power with a will to shape people’s consciousness
