Synopsis

DIRECTOR: Malgorzata Szumowska

WITH: Malgorzata Szumowska

Extremely funny and deadly serious, this brilliant black comedy centres on Jacek, a young construction worker in small-town Poland, who suffers a terrible work accident resulting in a face transplant. Not only does this provoke a crisis of identity, he also has to deal with the maddening reactions of his girlfriend, family and local community - not to mention the national media. A lacerating attack on prejudice and bigotry, Mug was awarded second prize at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.

The Cambridge Film Festival is presented by the Cambridge Film Trust, a registered charity with a mission to foster film culture and education for the benefit of the public, in Cambridge and the Eastern region but also throughout the UK.
