Teatroteka WFDIF is a series of screenings of Polish contemporary theatre drama produced by the Wytwórnia Filmów Dokumentalnych (Documentary and Feature Film Studio). Since 2015, the Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute, in cooperation with the WFDiF, has been organising regular screenings of the latest productions of Teatroteka. The presentations are accompanied by meetings with the creators.

A grotesque family drama taking place on Christmas Eve. Three generations and a dog gather for an annual ritual that has lost all its meaning. Instead of harmony and joy, there is recrimination and grievances. Instead of family warmth and love, there is an overwhelming sense of hurt and loneliness. The author depicts the breakdown of the family through the erosion of language which no longer serves as a means of communication. There is no actual dialogue here – instead of talking to one another the characters deliver monologues as they sink into an emotional and spiritual morass. Only the grandmother is still capable of expressing longing: for love, for the lost world of her youth, and for her late husband. Only the dog is capable of unconditional love because it doesn’t understand anything and doesn’t want anything in return. But then a visit by a mystery guest has unexpected consequences.
