BREAKING THE LIMITS
NAJLEPSZY
2017, 108 min, Poland, Dir: Lukasz Palkowski

Previously known as THE FASTEST, this uplifting biopic about one man’s remarkable transformation tells the true story of Jerzy Gorski, former junkie turned athletic champion. After spending 13 years struggling with heroin addiction, Gorski underwent intense physical and mental rehabilitation to become Poland’s Double Ironman World Champion. Director Lukasz Palkowski spares none of the gritty details in this realistic yet inspiring account of Gorski’s journey. The film was a major blockbuster in its native Poland, as well as winning Best Production Design and Best Debut Actor (actress Kamila Kaminska) at the Polish Film Awards.
