A psychological drama in the best Eastern European tradition, Magdalena Piekorz's debut feature impressively handles existential and political themes.

Thirty-year-old Wojciech Winkler is an ambitious and self-reliant man. Seemingly he has found his place in an orderly life living alone. Wojciech prefers not to have a family as it poses no risk in mistakenly becoming the sadistic father he remembers from his childhood. Not until a love interest appears in his life is he forced to face his haunted childhood memories and consequently his life choices.

A rumination on the remnants of childhood angst and abuse, The Welts chronicles Wojciech from his youth to his maturation into a grown man haunted by his past.

Film is based on the very well received novel by Wojciech Kuczok (who adapted his own material).

Screening within the Polish Films in English cycle.
