Director Jan Komasa in person for the 6:45pm screening on Friday,  September 9!

A rich popular teen spirals into an abyss of virtual online worlds in Jan Komasa’s coolly visualized tale of youth and oblivion. After a high-school dare leads to humiliation, Dominik (Jakub Gierszal) holes up in his room and makes a new mysterious acquaintance over the Web who leads him into the riskiest of online cultures. A selection of this year’s Berlin film festival, and a box-office hit in Poland, Komasa’s film presents a vulnerable protagonist different than the usual computer-obsessed outcast, in a tale that Variety dubbed Poland’s “first look at emo culture.”
