“Ziggy Dust” is a story about Zbyszek Cołbecki, from Toruń, an unconventional man and a unique personality.
The director takes the audience for a journey through the life of the main protagonist, starting in the late 1970s, until today. Back in the 1980s, Ziggy Dust was the founder and guitarist of punk-rock band Bikini, then became a watchmaker, a DJ, later an migrant by choice, and finally “Ziggy Dust – The Dancing Street Cleaner” in London, the latter of which did not escape the attention of the international media, such as CNN and the BBC.
Guests-witnesses are an important element in this film by Ryszard Kruk. He selected them carefully from among the people important for the music and cultural scenes, both in Toruń and in Poland generally. They are Kazik Staszewski and his wife Anna Staszewska, who sang in the band Bikini; Yach Paszkiewicz, who produced video clips for “Ziggy”; showman Paweł “Konjo” Konnak; Waldemar Rudziecki, the legendary Director of the first Od Nowa Academic Centre; and Wojtek Gałek, Director of the cult Pod Aniołem Artistic Club, which no longer exists.
