Nikifor Krynicki was a self-taught Polish painter who lived in poverty and obscurity for the majority of his life. His speech impediment led people to believe he was mentally disabled, and so he was left alone most of the time to paint. The film focuses on his last eight years when, with the support of painter Marian Włosiński, he produced some of his best work and finally managed to find an audience in the galleries in Poland. The formidable Krystyna Feldman, at the age of 85, took home several Best Actress awards for her turn in the title and notably male role. (Kinoteka)

Screening will be followed by a Q&A with Joanna Kos-Krauze
