26th TIDF: International Premiere

Due to a final casting call targeted to young non-binary and trans people for a Netflix film that is about to be filmed in Poland, Marek Kozakiewicz dwells on the multiple challenges these individuals have to face in a country infamously hostile to the LGBTQ+ community and their rights. High up on the list of candidates for the starring role - the first one that will be portrayed by a trans or non-binary person in a polish production – ranks Alin. Alongside them, we get to know several more candidates during casting calls, or their everyday lives, some of whom are in the process of transitioning. All of them, however, experience a dissociative reality; on the one hand, the prospect of a unique opportunity, representing a significant step towards the issue of visibility and equal rights. On the other, a forceful, ultraconservative, nationalistic, zealously religious pole roaring even louder, and threatening to plunge Poland into darkness. The clash of two worlds, let alone their face-off on the street, is chilling.
