A unique entry into the Sci-Fi cannon, The Man With The Magic Box falls somewhere between Memento, Blade Runner and The Time Traveller’s Wife. The story follows Adam (Piotr Polak), an amnesiac janitor, who falls in love with a woman of a higher class. He struggles to cope with city life in this future universe, but finds solace in an old radio that transports him back to the 50’s…literally. The film took home the Best International Science Fiction Film prize at the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival.
Screening is part of 16th KINOTEKA Polish Film Festival in London (7-29 March, www.kinoteka.org.uk)
