This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Krzysztof Zanussi
Two physicists who studied together in their youth, Jan and Marek, reunite at Jan's house in the countryside. As the friends catch up, Marek can't understand why Jan is wasting his potential and implores him to move back to Warsaw. Reminiscent of François Truffaut's Jules et Jim (1962), the threesome (including Jan's wife) spend time in each other's company, subtly testing the limits of what's appropriate.
Krzysztof Zanussi made over twenty shorts and TV films at the start of his career and The Structure of Crystal was his first feature, for which he won the promising Best First Work prize at the Mar del Plata Film Festival.
The Structure of Crystal, dir. Krzysztof Zanussi, Poland 1969, 74 min
