The film presents a behind-the-scenes look at a much derided profession. PAPARAZZI is the first Polish film to explore this topic. Bernaś looks at some of the most significant media incidents in Poland in 2010 from the point of view of the paparazzi – from the hunt for Roman Polanski to the Smoleńsk plane crash. However, in the foreground we see the dramatic story of a man who makes controversial choices on a daily basis, and who consequently pays a heavy emotional, personal and ethical price. The main protagonist appears to be as ruthless towards himself as towards the world in which he hunts.
