A Split, or Gombro in Berlin

Poland 2004 dir. Wiesław Saniewski 60 min

  • Director: Wiesław Saniewski

In 1963, an outstanding Polish writer Witold Gombrowicz came to Berlin from Argentina for
a one-year Ford scholarship (currently the DAAD cultural funding programme). The film tells
the story of his time in this city. Despite being so close to Poland, he unknowingly moved
further away from it during his stay.
"Split" is a docu-fiction based on Gombrowicz's "Diary". The writer was played by Wojciech
Ziemiański, an actor from Wroclaw. After the pre-premiere screening of the film, Rita
Gombrowicz declared that Ziemiański is indistinguishable from Gombrowicz.
The film was shot in Berlin and Buenos Aires, as well as in Poland (Gorzów Wielkopolski
and Barlinek).
The film received a Platinum Remi Award at Houston MFF.
