Innocent killer

14 November 2013

In PURGATORIO, one of the festival sections, the audience has a chance to see The Killer, directed by Jarosław Tumidajski and produced by Ludowy Theatre. The show, based on a play by a Russian playwright, Alexander Mołczanów, tells a story of a young man named Andriej who gets involved in a mafia matter. The director smartly plays with the conventions of a thriller and a melodrama, exposing our habits to trust seemingly transparent narrative schemes. As Tumidajski stated himself, it is a crime plot that goes wrong at one point and evolves into something completely else. Check it out yourself.
