AFTERIMAGE REVIEWED

“Afterimage” was Wadja’s final film. While I never quite got into Polish cinema, it’s always a loss when an international master dies. What struck me about the film is how it lingers on the process of instructing students. Taking place at the Lodz School of the Arts, we find an aging painter struggling to exist as a creative influence. The Communist oppressors keep sliding into the country and dominating his way of life. All the while, his students treat him like a Messiah.

The balance in finding how to live against those two influences defines the film. Is it yet another tale of a tortured old white guy trying to reclaim his life? Sure, but it handles the material so well. Pick it up and a few other Wadja films. You could stand the education.
