Still image from the film The Constant Factor

Director Krzysztof Zanussi is scheduled to be present.

Winner of several international awards, Krzysztof Zanussi’s film portrays a naïve but honest young man, Witold, dealing with the truths of his world. He dreams of climbing the Himalayas, just as his father had done before him. His skill in mathematics earns him a job in an international trade company, but he soon finds the position grating and he is constantly thwarted by his own candidness. Confronting the death of his mother, the illusion of choice, and the realities of his world, Witold continues forward in this frightening but powerful film. In Polish language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)

Special thanks to The Film Foundation, Milestone Films, Jędrzej Sabliński, and Amy Heller.
