French professor, film editor and director Claude Lanzmann's documentary which he wrote, premiered on French television, was screened in the Homage section at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival in 2013, was shot on locations in the United States and is a French production. It tells the story about a Polish-Jewish former resistance fighter, university teacher and reporter for the Government of the Republic of Poland in exile (1939-1990) named Jan Karski (1914-2000) and his experiences.
Distinctly and subtly directed by French filmmaker Claude Lanzmann, this quietly paced documentary which is narrated mostly from the interviewees' point of view, draws a quite extraordinary portrayal of a Polish author. While notable for its atmospheric milieu depictions and distinct cinematography by French cinematographers William Lubtchansky and Caroline Champetier, this narrative-driven story reflects upon what happened when the interviewee thirty-five years before his multiple conversations with Claude Lanzmann encountered the 32nd president of the United States of America named Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882-1945) in the final stages of World War II.
This historical testimony of real events which took place in the 1940s during the Second World War, which is set in the late 1970s in USA and which contains interviews conducted by the French filmmaker in the late 1970s which originally was intended to be used for another work which was released in the mid-1980s, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, subtle continuity and the remarkably efficient interviewing approach. An informatively multifaceted documentary.
