Based on the bizarre true story of the cult Polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński, The Last Family is the first narrative feature from the director of the award-winning documentary Deep Love. Beksiński is a gentle man with arachnophobia, despite his hard-core sexual fantasies and his fondness for painting disturbing dystopian works. He is a family man who wants only the best for his loving wife Zofia, neurotic son Tomasz and the couple’s ageing mothers. But Beksiński never believed that family life would always be sunshine and rainbows. As he tapes everything with his beloved camcorder, the 28-year Beksiński saga unfolds through paintings, near-death experiences, dance music trends and funerals …A drama full of dark humour and a tale about the confrontation between dreams and reality.

Award: Golden Lions in 2016

The film is not about explaining life, but documenting its weirdness. – Dan Fainaru, Locarno Review
