It is a
documentary presenting outstanding Polish artists of the 20th century and their
youth, maturing and the creative path. The documentary is an attempt to show
the process of artistic creation of people like Tadeusz Kantor, Jerzy
Nowosielski or Wojciech Jerzy Has. The production allows viewers to confront their
own reflections on the arts with those of the last generation to create during
the occupation. It is hard to imagine that they were able to paint or act on
stage knowing that at the same time innocent people were being arrested,
tortured and taken to concentration camps. Young artists working with Kantor
would risk their lives by doing so; nevertheless, they were passionate about
contemporary arts including cubism, surrealism or abstracts, which were
forbidden by the Germans. The production contains archival footage of Polish
Public Television, French INA – L’Institut National de L’Audiovisuel, Polish
National Film Archive, Polish Radio and other sources.
