Citizens K: The “K” Twins

Directed by Eyal Sivan and Georges Mink

The film presents a unique picture of the Polish state through the story of twin brothers Lech and Jaroslaw Kaczynski, President and Prime Minster of Poland respectively when the film was shot.  Through interviews with members of the Kaczynskis' party, the filmmakers deconstruct the dual, seemingly contradictory nature of leaders who equipped themselves with a modern Western-style party and pledged loyalty to democratic Europe, but exercised political power through family.
