18 October, 2018

This fall will be very special for one of our DoPs – Michał Łuka. “Call me Tony” directed by Klaudiusz Chrostowski with Michał Łuka as a cinematographer will be presented at a few film festivals in Poland and abroad.

First screenings abroad will already take place on 19th October at Central and Eastern European Film Festival CINEAST in Luxemburg and on the next day at the Polish Film Festival in Los Angeles. After that, ”Tony” will be presented in Toruń on 23rd October at 15:00 as a part of an International Film Festival TOFIFEST. The film will also be shown at the biggest Film Festival in Belarus – Minsk International Film Festival “Listapad” and in Chicago at a Polish Film Festival in America on 11th and 18th November.

‘Call Me Tony’ tells a story of Konrad – an 18-year-old boy from a mining town in the south of Poland who dreams about becoming an actor and his whole life revolves around achieving this goal. He is trying to create his own image based on his favourite action movie heroes/stars, exercising at the gym for hours on end and participating in bodybuilding competitions. At the same time, he is persistent in seeking the attention of his absent father and fights an inner battle between his true self and the image he is trying to create. Everything changes when he rediscovers his former passion for acting.
