Legendary director Andrzej Wajda’s final film is a passionate portrait of renowned avant-garde painter Władysław Strzemiński, who challenged Stalinist orthodoxy. In post-war Poland, Strzemiński works as a professor at the National School of Fine Arts in �ódź. His students treat him like the “messiah of modern painting,� but university authorities and the Ministry of Culture have a very different opinion. Refusing to comply with Party regulations, he is eventually expelled from the university and the artists’ union. As the Communist authorities continue their efforts to ruin him, Strzemiński remains steadfast in his political and artistic convictions.
