TRZECH KUMPLI

THREE BUDDIES

Ewa Stankiewicz, Anna Ferens
105, 2008, 105 Min

Three politically active friends and a death: In 1977, the student Pyjas died falling down a staircase in what appeared an accident. In 2008, the directors searched through the files and questioned the circle of friends for the background to an obvious betrayal. A balancing act between heated research and the desire to understand, accusation and forgiveness.

Pyjas, Wildstein and Waleszka were a sworn clique and members of an oppositional student association. They studied in the 1970s – a time in Poland of harsh censorship and ruthless police attacks. But they weren’t to be intimidated, they said and wrote what they thought, planned actions and published writings. When the suspicion was confirmed that there was a spy among them, Pyjas fell to his death apparently falling down stairs.

Ewa Stankiewicz and Anna Ferens investigate in their documentary this unsolved case, research files, and talk to contemporaries of the group including unquestioned eyewitnesses, in order to find the traitor and perhaps a trail of possible murderers. The case remains unclear, but the subjugation under which people – especially those politically active – found themselves at the time are becoming ever clearer. And the cases remain unsolved to this day. KF
