In the span of 11 tense minutes, a whirlwind of interlocking tales of life in the surveillance age unfold in 2015 thriller that’s entitled, not surprisingly, 11 Minutes, written and directed by veteran filmmaker Jerzy Skolimowski (Deep End, Torrents of Spring, Essential Killing).

11 Minutes1_optIn a city square in Warsaw, a sleazy film director “auditions” a married actress in a hotel room; a hot dog vendor goes about his work while concealing a dark secret; a drug runner has a tryst with a client’s wife; and a young man plots an ill-advised robbery.

Mixing sleek cinematography with footage from webcam, smartphone and CCTV cameras, the film lays out the pieces of a puzzle and then brings them together at the climax.

The IFC Films theatrical release, which stars Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones), Paulina Chapko (Oszukane), Andrzej Chyra (United States of Love) and Wojciech Mecwaldowski (Adventurers’ Club), won multiple prizes at the Venice Film Festival, Polish Film Festival and Lisbon & Estoril Film Festival.
