Inspired by incredible true events, "Carte Blanche" is a story about respected high school teacher who hides his progressing blindness from everyone around him - his friends, family, students and superiors. The medical diagnosis leaves little hope. Due to a genetic disorder Kacper is faced with a very real possibility of permanent blindness. Initially heartbroken, he decides to hide his health problems to fulfill his educational duty and help students with end of school exams. 

 

Maciej Białek, the original Kacper, still teaches in a Lublin high school and is highly respected and loved by his students.

Lublin teacher in fear of losing his job hides the fact he is losing sight. The short news article was very intriguing – says film director Jacek Lusinski. I found him and began to observe his life. I witnessed the lectures he gave at school, his personal get-togethers and normal every day struggles with his fate.

 

In “Carte Blanche” it is not sickness or handicap that are the main themes. What got my attention the most is the process that happens inside a man, when the world known so far begins to disappear and has to be filled with something new, a new world. Despite the complicated fate the main character is facing, I wanted the film to be filled with optimism and leave the viewer filled with hope -adds Lusinski.
