Martyr's Guidebook

Directed by Maksymilian Rzontkowski

Produced by Maksymilian Rzontkowski

Poland | Polish | 9' | Non-Fiction

In "Martyr's Guidebook" Tony is the ultimate good guy—sometimes to a fault. From nabbing the smallest slice of cake in grade school to guiding lost strangers in the city, his kindness knows no bounds. He also shares a flat with a giant Angel.

A one-of-a-kind magical realist comedy from Polish animator Maks Rzontowski, about a young man named Tony, whose tiny act of kindness as a boy (opting to take a small piece of his teacher’s birthday carrot cake, unlike his greedy classmates) attracts an otherworldly angel/demon… thing... Who decides to live with him and starts demanding French omelettes, binging Riverdale on Tony’s couch and criticizing Tony’s taste in Romanian dramas and… um… honestly, you just have to see this short; it’s weird and funny and totally unique. — Kath Tolentino, Programmer
