In his final film, the Polish master Andrzej Wajda creates a moving portrait of Polish avant-garde artist Wladyslaw Strzeminski (Boguslaw Linda, in a devastating performance). While teaching at the Higher School of Plastic Arts and creating some of the most potent abstract works of the post-WWII period, Strzeminski ran afoul of his political minders, thrusting him into a political battle over the meaning of art and free expression. AFTERIMAGE is Strzeminski’s timely, wrenching story.
