Wajda’s adaptation of Iwaszkiewicz’s SWEET RUSH at the New York Film Festival, October 2nd

Andrzej Wajda’s film adaptation of Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz’s short story “Tatarak” (translated as “Sweet Rush”) will enjoy its U.S. premiere at the New York Film Festival on October 2. The film is Wajda’s third Iwaszkiewicz adaptation, following The Birch Wood (1971) and The Maids of Wilko (1979) and stars Krystyna Janda (Man of Marble, Interrogation). Significantly, the adaptation involves an autobiographical film-within-a-film based on the death of Janda’s husband, and Wajda’s long-time cameraman, Edward Kłosiński. Acclaimed author Olga Tokarczuk wrote the screenplay.
