JAN ACCORDING TO HIMILSBACH
POLISH TITLE: JAN WEDŁUG HIMILSBACHA
A film on Jan Himilsbach who was ‘a stonemason by profession, a writer by talent and an actor by chance.’ The documentary was made on the basis of a forgotten radio feature, ‘Jan Lackland’, recorded in the 1980s by Irena Linkiewicz from the Polish Radio. The protagonist’s story is illustrated using a montage of film fragments, some from the archives of TVP Warsaw, and fictionalized scenes shot at SPATiF, the headquarters of the Association of Polish Artists of Theatre & Film.
