Scene from the performance
In the "I" performance, Charlie Chaplin is preparing for his first sound film... The performance has a light avant-vodeville form and vibrates with tap-dance, jazz, and mime. An expressive visual style creates an exciting and intimate theatrical experience. The story reveals human relationships and the stance of the international community towards Nazi Germany just before World War II. An artist faced with authorities and a man struggling with his weaknesses must both make decisions crucial to their careers.
Script, set design, direction: Romuald Wicza-Pokojski
