Hen and the Wat

Writer Jozef Hen recounts crucial moments of his wartime experiences - bombardment of Warsaw in September ‘39, escape from German invaders to USSR, service in the Red Army, life in Samarkand, subsequent escape to join Anders’ Polish Army. Almost all these events were later utilized in Hen’s screenplays. In the documentary biographical anecdotes have been confronted with fragments of the ‘60. movies “Don Gabriel”, “Unknown”, “No One is Calling”, “April”, “The Cross of Valour”. From Hen’s stories emerges figure of the Wandering Jew, miraculously saved from carnage, pondering over twists of fate and contemplating the world and human beings with gentle detachment.
