My Nikifor at Mill Valley Film Festival

In an extraordinary cross-gender performance, actress Krystyna Feldman becomes the curmudgeonly Polish folk artist Nikifor, a naive painter whose prolific talent and sheer stubbornness brought him national fame. Based on a true story, My Nikifor (crystal globe award, Karlovy Vary 2005) unfolds in mid-20th-century Poland across a gray winter landscape further oppressed by Communist party politics and perpetual shortages.
