GDYNIA: Jacek Bromski’s new political thriller Solid Gold will screen in the main competition of the 44th Gdynia Film Festival, running from 16 to 21 September 2019. The film will open in Polish cinemas on 11 November 2019, distributed by TVP Distribution.
The film, written and directed by Jacek Bromski, gives a look behind the scenes of the police and special services. It is a story about policemen investigating business and political connections in Pomerania, and working on a group that creates a financial pyramid scam offering investments for a suspiciously high percentage.
"Solid Gold is inspired by real events and fits in the category of political fiction films that reveal links that are unclear to the viewer and talks about matters happening outside the official message. The story is made up and dramatised for the needs of the film, however it is based on real events, according to the principle that fiction should shyly imitate life", Jacek Bromski said in an official statement.
The film was shot on location in Gdynia in 2019. It was produced by Michał Kwieciński through Akson Studio in coproduction with TVP, FINA and the Gdynia Culture Centre, with the support of the Polish Film Institute.
