Winner of multiple prizes at Gdynia Film Festival 2023 including the Golden Lion, Press Award and Youth Jury Award, all for Best Feature, Kos is a landmark action drama, based on real events, peppered with black comedy and echoes of Tarantino. Paweł Maślona described his second feature as an allegory about the proletarian fight against fascism. It follows the story of General Tadeusz "Kos" Kościuszko  (Jacek Braciak) who returns to Poland in 1794 and plans to start an uprising against the Russians. He is accompanied by his faithful friend and ex slave Domingo ( Jason Mitchell) and chased by Russian cavalry captain Dunin (Robert Więckiewicz) who is determined to foil his plans.
