Dir. Krzysztof Kieslowski. 1975, 70 mins. 16mm. With Juliusz Machulski, Irena Lorentowicz, Wlodzimierz Borunski, Michal Tarkowski. Romek is a sensitive and idealistic young student at a theatrical technical college. Working at his first job in the tailoring workshop of an opera, his illusions are shattered by the harsh realities of backstage bickering, petty jealousies, and corruption. Kieslowski's made-for-TV film is a microcosm, positing, as many of his subsequent films would, the workplace as an arena for moral choice. 

Please note: Due to technical issues, the short films X-Ray (1974, 12 mins.) and Before the Rally (1971, 14 mins.) will now be screening as part of a new program Everyday Dramas: Documentary Shorts III, on Saturday, November 5, at 1:00 p.m.
