THE WORLD OF Z
Brad Besser in person!
- THE WORLD OF Z
- 2011, Brad Besser and Vince Clemente, USA, 80 min
At first sight, 60-year-old Zbigniew Daniel Fiks, a Chicagoan who arrived from Poland at the age of 13, is an engaging man. He’s an artist whom friends refer to as a genius, a poet, and a raconteur of conspicuously nimble intelligence. He’s also a manic-depressive subject to such violent rages that his own mother has had him jailed. Directors Besser and Clemente took a three-year journey into the brilliant and terrifying world of “Z,” charting the struggles with bipolar disorder that have scarred his life, and compassionately exploring the mystery of the untamed creativity that comes at so high a personal price.
