Director Krzysztof Zanussi is scheduled to be present.An ironical and absurd comedy, Camouflage transports us to a university summer school camp. The shallowness and cynicism of the academic milieu becomes apparent through the relationship between a young linguistics professor, Jaroslaw, and his diabolical senior colleague, Jakub. “All people are conformists just like you and I,” exclaims the latter, protesting against the liberal teaching approach of Jaroslaw. Renowned contemporary Polish director Krzysztof Zanussi presents the deeply troubling premise of academic conformity with witty humor mocking the status quo. In Polish language with English subtitles. (2K DCP presentation)
