Sekret

Secret

 
Ksawery tritt als Drag-Queen-Tänzer auf. Jan ist sein Großvater und der einzige Mensch, zu dem er eine funktionierende Verwandtschaftsbeziehung hat. Karolina ist Ksawerys Agentin. Gemeinsam besuchen sie Jan auf dem Land. Doch die grünen Wiesen und idyllischen Seen haben schlechte Zeiten gesehen: Gegen Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs bemühten sich hier sowohl deutsche Besatzer als auch Polen, die ortsansässigen Juden zu ermorden und zu vertreiben. Karolina stellt Fragen, die der Großvater nicht beantwortet. Auf einer Hochzeitsfeier hätten sie fast zusammen getanzt – der vermeintliche Täter, das potentielle Opfer und der Außenseiter. (Bernd Buder)

“I love these characters. He's gay, she's Jewish. They're outcasts in a society that almost got rid of the likes of them. Almost. But they're both nobodies. He's barely tolerated. She's looking for truth, but she can only plead for help, no one supports her. Eventually, they both explode. Their heads explode. She's returning to this house like a zombie. Hopeless and degraded. He explodes on the stage. If you're human, your head has to explode in a culture of lies, where a murderer is a good neighbor, and no one wants to know, no one cares.” (Przemysław Wojcieszek)
