The protagonist of possibly the best picture by Krzysztof Zanussi, awarded with the Grand Prix in Locarno in 1973 keeps searching for the truth about himself and the world with a desire to find enlightenment. Such illumination is also required by the characters of the films screened and awarded at prestigious film festivals as well as their authors in order to create outstanding works of art not lending themselves well to simple interpretation. This section features films about a remarkable painter with Polish roots, the Chopin Competition and its talented participants, an international female friendship between two revolutions as well as an experimental documentary inspired by Stanisław Lem works.
