Nightmares

dir.

Wojciech Marczewski

1978, 1 h 45 min

The coming-of-age story of Mikołaj Srebrny, a confrontation between an
intelligent, sensitive boy and an authoritarian school persecuting
independent thinking, the hypocrisy and cruelty of adults. And although
consecutive initiations – including that into eroticism – sometimes
prove difficult, the protagonist emerges from his life trials unscathed.

Wojciech Marczewski’s cinema debut, honoured with the Andrzej
Munk Award. An adaptation of a formerly scandalous novel by Emil
Zegadłowicz with a strong autobiographical overtone. The director’s
first story about childhood and its initiations, with a crucial question
recurring in his later films: how to save yourself and find your place
in the world.
