We invite you to the screening of the latest Bodo Kox’ film, “The Man with the Magic Box”, which will be highlighted by the meeting with the director. During 24th IFF Etiuda&Anima, this legendary artist of the Polish off scene will also appear in another role – as a member of the ETIUDA Competition Jury.
Bodo Kox got his diploma in journalism, and is a director, a scriptwriter and an actor by profession. For many years he continued to be one of the major representatives of the Polish off-cinema. Intially, he dreamed of a music career, but in the end he found himself working in the independent cinema. At first he used his nickname Bodo Kox to sign his off-cinema films but then in 2006 he officially changed his name Bartosz Koszała into Bodo Kox in the Registry Office. Having gained success in the independent film, he started directing studies in the Polish National Film School in Lodz, followed by scriptwriting course at the Wajda School in Warsaw. He made his debut in professional film with his well-received Girl from the Closet (Dziewczyna z szafy, 2012). The Man with the Magic Box, which is presented at this year’s E&A festival, is his second feature film.
“The Man with the Magic Box” is an unusual comedy about time travel and love that can conquest time and space. Warsaw, 2030. It may seem that in case of Adam, a better tomorrow already happened yesterday. The protagonist, suffering from a mysterious memory loss, has to make a fresh start.
