After becoming a licensed engineer abroad, Lucyna comes back to Poland to look for a job. Her father, a wealthy factory-owner, thinks it's inappropriate for a high-society girl to work. And so, following in the steps of Viola from Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, she decides to rename herself Julian and dress and work as a man at her father's factory. Matters soon become complicated when she meets Żarnowski, a young engineer who she falls in love with. Is Lucyna A Girl? is a classic comedy of errors that still manages to be amusing today.
Screening will be introduced by Michał Pieńkowski from the National Film Archive - Audiovisual Institute.
