Letter from Argentina

Grzegorz Pacek
List z Argentyny
Poland 1997 / 54’

Letter from Argentina is a documentary postscript to Witold Gombrowicz’s biography. By reviewing archive materials and interviewing the eccentric writer’s friends, the director attempts to learn something about his intimate life in Argentina. From somewhere among the writings, among the ‘me’, ‘me’ and ‘me’, appears ‘he’ – the author’s son born out of wedlock.
