Polish Cinema for Beginners – “Carte Blanche” by Jacek Lusiński

On the 30th of March we are pleased to host another screening of Polish Cinema

(“11 Minutes”), now it is time for Lublin, captured in “Carte Blanche” by Jacek
Kacper Bielik (Andrzej Chyra) is a history teacher in a high school in Lublin.
He loves his job, gets on great with his students, only sometimes feels a little
lonely. The new year brings him new opportunities: he becomes a class teacher,
befriends Klara (Eliza Rycembel) a difficult student, starts a relationship with
Ewa (Urszula Grabowska), also a teacher. Unexpectedly he starts losing his
sight. Will he be able to hide this and live his life to the fullest? A film by
Jacek Lusiński, based on a true story of a blind teacher, was awarded a Grand
Prix at Shanghai International Film Festival. Andrzej Chyra’s role deserves a
particular recognition and so does the humanistic message that this film
carries, which makes us believe the world could be a better place.
