    • Synopsis
    • Each year twelve young Japanese students decide to sign up for the Polish Language and Culture Studies at the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies. They still are teenagers, cannot pronounce the word “kiełbasa” and believe that people in Poland drink milk from huge cartons. One of the compulsory tasks for second-year students is to stage a play in Polish. This year, it will be The Martyrdom of Peter Ohey by Sławomir Mrożek. In his documentary The Art of Understanding, Matej Bobrik tells about their struggle, not only with the Polish language, and about how hard their projections clash with reality.
