Janusz Morgenstern, aka Kuba for friends, came from a Jewish family, whom he lost in the Holocaust. He made films that left a permanent mark on Polish cinematography, including ‘Good Bye, Till Tomorrow’, ‘To Kill This Love’ and ‘Yellow Scarf’. The viewers owe him such TV series as ‘More Than Life At Stake’, ‘Polish Roads’ or ‘Columbuses’. Morgenstern’s portrait is woven out of interviews, broadcasts, photos and his own films – a means of escape from the trauma experienced during the war. His loved ones as well as actors and colleagues talk about his artistic activity.
