Camera Buff (Polish: Amator, meaning "amateur") one of the greatest films of so called cinema of moral concern has been arousing keen interest since its release till today. At the end of the 70s, Krzysztof Kieślowski targeted the film to the unrest generation of the contemporary thirties, but the issues that the film raises  the limits of responsibility and courage, the place and role of art in human life, have retained their validity till today. The document talks about the making of and behind the scene of Camera Buff by Krzysztof Kieślowski. Film producers ponder on the question of how many personal themes of people involved in the production of this film appeared in the work. They also wonder what impact Kieślowski had on his associates and actors, as well as on a group of amateur filmmakers from which he took the realities for the scenario. Directors Andrzej Jurga and Krzysztof Zanussi along with the lead actor, Jerzy Stuhr, talk about the Camera Buff. In the film, the producers have also used the archival interviews with Krzysztof Kieślowski.
