(Jacek Blawut / 2004 / Poland / 53 min, Polish with English subtitles)
Robert is 23 and he has been in prison since he was fifteen. He spends some of his time participating in a rehabilitation program Duet, in which he assists mentaly handicapped children. Initially nervous and unreliable, Robert slowly gets used to his work at the centre and develops an original approach to the children. During the interviews with Robert, the director contrasts the two worlds he lives in: the cold prison cell and the loud and lively world at the centre. The film won the Don Quixote Award at the 2004 Krakov film festival.
Following the screening, there will be a discussion of the film with experts on psychology and mental handicaps and with professional artists working with mentally handicapped people. In case of interest, please contact us at email@example.com.
