With his newest production I'm a Killer, the multi-award-winning Polish film director Maciej Pieprzyca (Life Feels Good, Audience Award at CinEast 2014) brings to the screen the story of The Vampire of Zag³êbie, a serial killer of women, inspired by real events from the early 1970s. The story is told from the perspective of Janusz, a young, ambitious detective who becomes the head of a police unit focused on catching the killer. Pieprzyca examines the entanglement and moral depravity of an individual who – despite his good intentions – is unwilling to confront his own weaknesses and ambitions and the socio-political system in which he lives and works. A sophisticated, stylish crime story and captivating psychological thriller all at the same time, immersing the viewer in the world of the 70s, yet offering a very universal portrait of a man overpowered by evil.

L'histoire du Vampire de Zag³êbie, un tueur en série, inspirée par des événements réels du début des années 1970, racontée du point de vue de Janusz, un jeune commissaire ambitieux qui devient le chef d'une unité de police vouée à la capture du tueur. À mi-chemin entre le polar complexe et le thriller psychologique captivant, le film plonge le spectateur dans la Pologne des années 70, tout en peignant le portrait universel d'un homme possédé par le mal.
