Danielak will stop at nothing to achieve his aim of hosting the town’s 500th anniversary celebrations. In this early role Jerzy Stuhr (soon to be seen in Provincial Actors and Camera Buff) plays the entertainer to perfection as an intentionally evil man with an overt lack of morals.
Causing much debate on its release in Poland Top Dog exposed the consequences of weak moral codes and offered a reading of corruption that was not limited to showbusiness. Falk (also an artist and theatre director) was working alongside Holland and Kieslowski in Wajda’s X fIlm Unit, at the forefront of the emerging Cinema of Moral Anxiety. The film had success on the International festival circuit including winning the Golden Plaque at Chicago 1979.
Following the screening there will be a Closing Gala Party from 20:30 at Ognisko Polskie, led by Margot Przymierska, who will present a dollop of stage inspired entertainment served alongside your ‘cutlet’ with exotic sprinkling. Join us for comedy, cabaret, songs of the era and belly dancing.
Please note: There are two seperate ticket options: one for those who only want to attend the Film Screening only and a second option for the Screening + Closing Gala Party.
