 THE MOLE is one of the first narrative features that directly examine the painful process of “lustration.” The archives of the secret police were never therefore made open to the public: the legislation governing these archives has changed several times, but access to the files of former collaborators with the regime is still very limited. Nevertheless, every public official in Poland is required to sign a “declaration of non-collaboration” with the former secret police. Known as “lustration”, this process of bringing the truth to light is the source of many controversies and scandals. 

Set in today’s Poland, this political and psychological thriller is also universal in its treatment of the consequences of “lustration” in the private sphere, between a father and son.
