Cinema is about drudgery, it is about getting up early, about not sleeping at night, about fretting about rain... This is cinema, this is real cinema. And the moments of satisfaction happen seldom, as Krzysztof Kieslowski often used to say. His former student and outstanding documentary filmmaker today tries to paint his portrait from his words, fragments of films, scraps of memories kept by his friends and colleagues - Wim Wanders, Agnieszka Holland, Slawomir Idziak, Jacek Petrycki, Irene Jacob, Zbigniew Preisner.
