  • 1976 ----- color ----- 153 min ----- vhs
  • (Directed by Andrzej Wajda; with Jerzy Radziwilowicz, Krystyna Janda) Follows a film student (Janda) who wants to make a documentary about a former worker as her graduation requirement. A man (Radziwilowicz) who had been lauded for his brick-laying skills before vanishing into total obscurity is to be her subject. Previously the subject of a film that showed what a great worker he was, the man became something of a star. But when he began believing the publicity himself and started interfering in worker politics, the government quickly stifled him, disgracing his name, and banishing him into historical obscurity. The young student discovers the truth which had been hidden for years.
