    Drama

    Inspired by Albert Camus’ The Stranger, THE SUN, THE SUN BLINDED ME follows Rafał Mularz, a stranger in his own society who creates a daily routine and a lifestyle that protects him from the outside world. His method seems to work fine until he is confronted with another stranger. A man thrown out by the sea, an immigrant. Rafał has to make a decision: Will he confront this society unfit for strangers and take responsibility for this man? Or will he choose to continue to protect himself?

    What I think is important is not to distinguish history from the present day – it has a continuity and an influence on our life these days.

    Both born in Tarnów, Poland, Anka Sasnal and Wilhelm Sasnal have signed numerous films together including SWINEHERD (2008), IT LOOKS PRETTY FROM A DISTANCE (2011), which was selected in Rotterdam, ALEKSANDER (2013) and PARASITE (2014).
