Afterimage is the final film by Polish director Andrzej Wajda, who died last year at the age of 90. In a career already marked by many illustrious films, including Ashes and Diamonds, Afterimage is a late masterpiece. The 90-year-old director’s work has lost none of its force of outrage over the years, but this film carries extra resonance in light of the contemporary situation in Poland, even though the film is set in the dark days of Soviet communist rule. Based on the life of the avant-garde artist Wladyslaw Strzeminski (brilliantly played by Polish superstar Boguslaw Linda) it blazes with energy, passion, and controlled fury as it follows the life of a man who refuses to bend to official ideology, even when it threatens his very existence.
