IFI & KINOPOLIS: JACK STRONG

Director: WŁADYSŁAW PASIKOWSKI

128 minutes, Poland, 2014, Subtitled, Colour, D-Cinema


‘Jack Strong’ was the codename of Ryszard Kukliński, a Polish army colonel who, disillusioned under Soviet rule and fearing for his country’s future, passed Soviet secrets to the CIA during the Cold War, yet remains a divisive figure in Poland, under suspicion of being a double agent.

 In this engrossing new film from director Władysław Pasikowski (Aftermath), Kukliński (Marcin Dorociński) is portrayed as a man willing to put himself and his family at risk for the sake of a greater good, burdened with the difficulties of a life of duplicity and the ever-present possibility of being uncovered as a spy. 

Showing as part of IFI & Kinopolis: 9th Polish Film Festival (November 6th – 9th).
