The gifted and intuitive, Oscar-nominated director Jill Godmilow (Antonia: Portrait of a Woman) in 1974) helms this 1980 documentary - an intimate, deeply-felt portrait of Polish theatrical legend Jerzy Grotowski. Grotowski (familiar to many given André Gregory's discussion of him in My Dinner with André) here teams up with a film crew and hearkens off to Nienadowka, Poland - the hamlet where he, his mother and his brother were concealed from the Gestapo during the Nazi occupation of Poland. The film finds Grotowski searching for mnemonic and sensorial associations from his childhood (that, in turn, fueled his art), then trekking off to his aunt's apartment in Rzeszow, where he breaks the fourth wall, addressing the audience one-on-one about the fundamentals of his theatrical work. Peter Brook narrates.
