This intimate biopic portrays the last period in the life of Polish artist Wladyslaw Strzeminski, a pioneer of the avant-garde during the 20’s and 30’s.  Struggling with physical impairments, Strzeminski defies the communist

regime’s efforts to make him conform to the orthodox style of Socialist Realism and suffers the dramatic consequences of his choices.  “Afterimage” portrays how the communist regime destroyed this charismatic and defiant man.  Wajda, like no one, can tell a universal story, capturing the painterly qualities of the every day world and intriguing the viewer.
