, it might suggest that his upcoming effort, Kos, will be anything but a classical period biopic. The titular Kos is Tadeusz Kościuszko, a Polish national hero and the leader of the 1794 uprising against the Russian Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia that happened after the Second Partition of Poland.

As actor Bielenia tells Gazeta Wyborcza, all characters apart from Kościuszko and Domingo are fictitious. The film is said to be a “story of violence”, that ever-present scourge of Poland’s history and present day.
