WARSAW: The Performer, the debut feature of Łukasz Ronduda and Maciej Sobieszczanski, was selected for Berlinale Forum Expanded (5-15 February 2015).
Combining a documentary with a fictional narrative, the film is based on the life of one of the most original contemporary artist, the performer Oskar Dawicki, who plays himself.
The project was produced by Wajda Studio and coproduced by Telewizja Polska S.A, Art Stations Foundation, Heliograf, Film Factory, Artcore and Kosma Films. It was co-financed by the Polish Film Institute.
Two performances and 32 films from a total of more than 20 different countries will be presented in 18 programmes at the Akademie Studio and the Arsenal cinema in the Forum Expanded section.
