The title character of this film is post-communist Poland’s answer to Edward Scissorhands. Conspicuously different, rebuffing all trends, he goes through life with a vintage shopping bag in hand, while behind his back friends, family, and style mavens are none too generous about his ‘style’. But this is not only a story about a nonconformist. More than that, it is a humorous look at Polish mentalities – what not so long ago was a naïve fascination with colorful Western lifestyles, has now become something more like pretentious posturing.
Born in 1978, he studied geography at the University of Łódź and film editing at the National Film School in the same city. He currently works in television. His short documentary Miasto grzejników [Heater City] won the audience award at the KultOff Kino festival in 2011.
