Legendary director Andrzej Wajdaâ€™s final film is a passionate portrait of renowned avant-garde painter WÅ‚adysÅ‚aw StrzemiÅ„ski, who challenged Stalinist orthodoxy. In post-war Poland, StrzemiÅ„ski works as a professor at the National School of Fine Arts in Å�Ã³dÅº. His students treat him like the â€œmessiah of modern painting,â€� 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 artistsâ€™ union. As the Communist authorities continue their efforts to ruin him, StrzemiÅ„ski remains steadfast in his political and artistic convictions.
