(Tadeusz Konwicki, Poland, 1965, DCP, 104 min)

Co-presented with the Seattle Polish Film Festival

A Western set in Poland of the 1960s. A man on the run jumps off a train and seeks refuge in a scarcely populated settlement, nearly a ghost town. It is hard to tell what or where the place is, set halfway between dream and reality, inhabited by people in distress. Who is the mysterious Mr. Nobody? To some he seems to be a prophet; to others, a martyr or a common liar. This enigmatic role was played by Zbyszek Cybyluski, one of the most recognizable and beloved stars in the history of Polish cinema.
