"The Leader" - short documentary about divided Poland
piotr malecki
Jul 7, 2021
My film "The Leader" is ready:

A light and lively portrait of today's divided Poland as seen through the eyes of an extraordinary hairdresser.
Mr Kijowski was a leader of huge protests against the current authoritarian government. His opposition organization collapsed in 2016 when he left in infamy, accused of fraud. His today’s life as a hairdresser, but also still a political demonstrator, is full of wit and humour as things don't always go as planned.
