Interrogation (Przesłuchanie)
A film by Ryszard Bugajski
Poland, 1982

Blu-ray Special Edition

“Sombre and harrowing, enlivened by a few flashes of sour wit, it is a highly intelligent accountHilary Mantel, The Spectator

Based on true events, and with a mesmersing performance by the great Krystyna Janda, Ryszard Bugajski’s harrowing film was banned under martial law in Poland, but thrived on underground VHS after a copy was smuggled out by the director at immense personal risk. Finally released after the Fall of Communism, the film remains a powerful indictment of totalitarianism.

Second Run present the world Blu-ray premiere of Bugakski's masterwork. Our disc includes an in-depth interview with the late director about the film, plus a 40-page booklet with the complete transcript of the 1982 hearing before the so-called ‘Co-laudation’ commission which led to Interrogation’s total suppression.

“The beautiful, meticulously restored print brings alive the magic created on screen by Aravindan’s observational eye”

Cutting between skilled performers and wide-eyed spectators, the film encapsulates the sheer magic of art encountered for the first time.
