found footage

Screening of Zbyszek, a ground-breaking film by Jan Laskowski. The first Polish found footage tells the story of the legend of post-war cinema, Zbigniew Cybulski, using only excerpts from films in which he appeared. The actor's tragic death on platform 3 of the Wrocław Główny railway station is a sentimental reason to return to this unique work, a vision of searching, bitterness and inadequacy.

The picture features fragments of such films as A Generation, Ashes and Diamonds, Salto, The Codes, Mexico Tomorrow, Jowita, No More Divorces, Love at Twenty, Penguin, Good Bye, Till Tomorrow, The End of Night and Evening Before Christmas.
