Zdzisław Beksiński is one of the most recognisable Polish painters of the 20th century. To this day, his surrealist, visionary painting arouses wide interest among audiences and remains an inspiration for successive generations of artists, For a decade, between 1987 and 1997, Beksiński documented his family life and artistic process on video. From Within consists in its entirety of footage shot by the artist himself and his immediate family. This unique, intimate journal is at once a chronicle of social changes in Poland, the fall of communism and the first years of democracy. The makers have tried to remain objective chroniclers of the approximately 300 hours of video material that Beksiński left behind him. The film can be seen as the artist's last work, a last attempt to stand up to the relentless passage of time.
