Kill It and Leave This Town, dir. Mariusz Wilczyński (Poland) 2020, 88’, 15+
Escaping despair after the loss of his loved ones, the protagonist hides in a safe land of memories, where time stands still and all his loved ones are alive. Over the years, the city develops in his imagination. One day, childhood heroes and idols known from literature and cartoons, eternally young in the minds of future generations, arrive uninvited. When our hero discovers that everyone has grown old and that eternal youth does not exist, he decides to return to real life. The film was awarded at e.g. IAFF in Ottawa, Animafest Zagreb, IAFF Animator and Polish Film Festival in Gdynia.
After the screening, we invite you to join a discussion with Mariusz Wilczyński.
