The English title of the Polish Gwiazda Piolun is The Star Wormwood. You'd never know it from that name, but this is a glowing tribute to a theatrical giant. The subject is Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz, one of the leading lights of the Polish avant-garde theater movement. The film chronicles the last days in the life of the amazing "Witcaky." Much of Gwiazda Piolun has been adapted by Wladislaw Terlecki from Witkiewicz' own works.
