Krzysztof Zanussi had to undergo brain surgery as a result of the injury. In a recording published on social media, the outstanding director talked about his hospital experiences and his health condition.

Krzysztof Zanussi posted a video on his Facebook profile. Sitting against the background of flowers, the creator of such works as “The Year of the Quiet Sun” or “Protective Colors” explains his changed appearance. – I have some, apparently serious, threat and problems – said Zanussi. Referring to the events of the end of April, he admitted that “for the first time in his long life” he was hospitalized. – I underwent surgery, which is a brain surgery, and concerns hematomas that occurred after a trauma – added the director.

The creator emphasized that he “does not want to go into” the medical details of his condition. – I neither know anything about it, nor is anyone particularly interested in it – he said. He explained that he decided to refer to recent events so that viewers of the videos regularly published on his social media would know what caused the change in his appearance. – It's not a pursuit of fashion or a desire to look younger, (…) just a trace of the fact that I underwent surgery – he said, pointing to the hairstyle he currently wears.

Zanussi also decided to share some of his observations about the recent “encounter with hospital reality.” – It's always a great experience. I have avoided this in my long life. This is something new, he began. As he later added, “this whole reversal of the order of life that happens in the hospital, when a person loses a little of his subjectivity” must be “useful” after all, since “he was not spared.”

Krzysztof Zanussi is one of the most outstanding Polish filmmakers. He is known to moviegoers primarily thanks to such films as “Protective Colors”, “Illumination”, “Beyond the Wall”, “Constans”, “Life as a Sexually Transmitted Disease”, “Family Life”, “Foreign Body” and “The Year peaceful sunshine.” For the last of them, the director received a Golden statuette in 1984 Lion. “Constans”, in turn, won the recognition of the jury of the 33rd edition of the Cannes competition, which awarded Zanussi the Silver Palm. In 2001, the director received the Eagle Award for “Life as a sexually transmitted disease”. 18 years later, it was appreciated again by the Polish Film Academy.
