Roly Poly | Chicago Reader

Roly Poly

Andrzej Wajda's 1968 Polish short, adapted from a story by Stanislaw Lem, uses shots of Chicago skyscrapers to set in motion a bizarre futuristic story of a race-car driver who's had so much of his body replaced by transplants that insurance companies question his very identity and he's asked to support the children of one of his donors. Lem wrote Wajda that Roly Poly “rekindled my trust in cooperation with film,” and its amusing satire on the way people are constructed—and reconstructed—by technology and bureaucracy seems even more biting today. 36 min.
