Today’s most relevant, bold, thrilling cinema
POLAND | 88 minutes | 2020
Mariusz Wilczynski, who grew up in beaten-down, 80s-era Poland, delivers his first animated feature. Here, he returns to a land that exists only in his mind and memories and whose fractured chronology reflects a fractured reality. Kill It and Leave This Town is a deep dive into the artist’s psyche and the events of a dream life punctuated by jazz, surrealism, history and a sense of the macabre. The visuals are hand-drawn, twitchy and jaw- droppingly inventive. A visceral, unforgettable experience featuring the voices of some top- notch Polish actors (Krystyna Janda, Andrzej Chyra).“In its most poignant, resonant moments, the film feels both devastatingly personal and affectingly revelatory” ScreendailyIn collaboration with the Sommets du cinéma d’animation
