How It’s Done
Saturday, Dec 3, 2022 at 4:15 pm
Location: Bartos Screening Room
With Paweł Łoziński in person
Dir. Marcel Łoziński. 2006, 90 mins. Piotr Tymochowicz, a media advisor to some of Poland’s top politicians, thinks that anybody can be molded into a charismatic leader. To prove it, he puts out a call for neophyte applicants for political candidacy, and hundreds apply. He selects a small group for training, which Polish master filmmaker Łoziński follows for three years. The result is a dynamic, entertaining, and implicitly damning snapshot of opportunistic, all-too-familiar reductive populism in action.
