WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Raw Bacon From Poland, 2016 Guggenheim Fellow Christina Masciotti's newest work, tells the story of shoe salesman and aspiring personal trainer Dennis Toledo, as a lifetime of trouble assumes a new intensity after a bad tour in Iraq. Though he's managed to anesthetize the enduring wounds of his service with prescription drug abuse, when he's arrested on a domestic violence charge and sentenced to Brooklyn Treatment Court, he's forced to find new ways to handle his volatile tangle of mixed emotions. Further upheaval with his wife leaves him perched on the edge of recovery with an all-consuming drive to win full custody of his six-year-old daughter.
