Warsaw, 1953. Among the post-war rubble, the new politics is being tempered with good company, a healthy dose of vodka, and basement jazz. As writer Mister T. (Paweł Wilczak) knows, anything is possible, including his affair with the high-school student (Maria Sobocińska) he is tutoring. When an aspiring journalist (Sebastian Stankiewicz) moves into his block, the surrealist world of Mister T.’s imagination begins to collide with the absurdity of the communist state. A film that relishes the comedy of the bizarre, Mister T. is a black-and-white throwback to a time when paranoia ruled the streets of Poland.
Screening will be followed by a Q&A with actor Paweł Wilczak.
