Jacek Blawut. Retrospective

Rat in the Crown / Szczur w koronie

Year
2005
Duration
47’
Director
Jacek Blawut

This film displays the several-month-long friendship between the director (although he never appears on screen, the characters repeatedly speak to “pan Jacek” – the man standing behind the camera) and a 32-year-old Michal Waluda, who suffers from alcoholism. Following several rehab sessions in hospital, Michal returns to an empty home and goes on another alcohol binge. The film finally turns out to be a tale of the road leading to drunkard’s death, one that the protagonist cannot escape. The film received the Grand Prix at the Lodz Media Festival “Man in Danger”, a prize at the festival in Lagow “for the best non-feature Polish film”.
