dir. Krzysztof Zanussi, Poland, 1980, DCP, color, Polish w/ English subtitles, 90 min.

Warmly received at the Cannes Festival and winner of several international awards, Krzysztof Zanussi’s film portrays a naïve but honest young man, Witold, dealing with the truths of his world. He dreams of climbing the Himalayas, just as his father had done before him. His skill in mathematics earns him a job in an international trade company, but he soon finds the position grating and he constantly thwarted by his own candidness. Confronting the death of his mother, the illusion of choice, and the realities of his world, Witold continues forward in this frightening but powerful film.
