Filip Plawiak – actor – The Red Spider

FRED’s Matt Micucci interviews Filip Plawiak, actor in Marcin Koszalka’s feature fiction directorial debut THE RED SPIDER, which had its world premiere as part of the official competition selection of the 50th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival.

Filip plays the role of a young man who becomes fascinated with a serial killer who is keeping Krakow, Poland in the late sixties in terror. He tells us about what attracted him to the role and about his collaboration with the director.

He also talks about what he believes to be the best aspects of the film, one of which is the way in which the story purposefully chooses not to spoon-feed the audience and manipulate their reactions to the on screen action.

THE RED SPIDER: This feature debut by a leading Polish documentarist and cameraman was inspired by actual mass murders committed in the 1960s. A precisely constructed psychological thriller, the film delves into an intricate story of the fascination with evil that hides in places we would never expect.
