I AM DOCU
The ﬁlm presents a behind-the-scenes look at a much derided profession. The director looks at some of the most signiﬁcant media incidents in Poland in 2010 from the point of view of the paparazzi, Przemysław Stoppa from the hunt for Roman Polanski to the Smolensk Disaster. However, in the foreground we see the dramatic story of a man who makes controversial choices on a daily basis, and who consequently pays a heavy emotional, personal and ethical price. The main protagonist appears to be as ruthless towards himself as the world in which he hunts.
