Afterimage is the final film by Polish director Andrzej Wajda, who died last year at the age of 90. The great Polish actor Boguslaw Linda, a Wajda veteran, stars as an artist who refuses to bend to official ideology, even when it threatens his very existence. Fourteen-year-old Bronislawa Zamachowska gives a wonderful performance as the daughter of the defiant artist.

The legendary filmmaker’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. In a career already marked by many illustrious films, including Ashes and Diamonds, Afterimage is a late masterpiece. It blazes with energy, passion, and controlled fury.

Poland / 98 minutes / underwritten in part by the IU Polish Studies Center

Afterimage is an angry, vivid, passionate film. Cinema is worse off now that Andrzej Wajda, one of the truly towering greats of the form, is dead; there is some consolation, though, that he went out with his boots still most defiantly on. – The New York Times
