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.
An intimate psychological drama that takes a close look at the everyday anguish of its two protagonists: a married couple sharing a small apartment with an infirm and burdensome old woman. An insight into the life of the residents of a tenement building, who seem to make up a close-knit community, but are in fact unable to see the tragic fate of their neighbors. The determination with which the main character, whom everybody calls Baldy’s wife, fights her lonely battle with everyday life lends her a tragic and deeply human dimension. But her sense of helplessness and the resentment that has accumulated over the years finally become unbearable.
