CAMERA BUFF / AMATOR
/ Director: Krzysztof Kieslowski / 112 MIN
The factory worker Filip Mosz (Jerzy Stuhr in one of his most important
roles) founds an amateur film club. His unfiltered depiction of the daily
grind in his factory wins a prize, and is even shown on television. But
his films upset the balance of his fellow human beings and public life,
something for which he must now accept responsibility. At the same time,
he begins to realize that as an artist he can describe the world only
if he also trains the camera on his own self. Kieslowski’s first
international success is striking for its para-documentary style –
crucially supported by Jerzy Stuhr’s performance – and its
commitment to a truthful description of reality.
