Wanted

Canada, 1990 (MIFF 1992, Documentary)

Director: Barbara Poznanski

Jozef Klyk is obsessed with the American West; so much so that he directs, writes, shoots and stars in films, which he shoots with his hand-cranked camera. Jozef Klyk lives in a small village in the south of Poland and has never even visited the US. Wanted is a docu­mentary about a remarkable man who dreams of a place that exists in his imagination only. An Eastern Western, one might say.
