Diamonds out of the Ashes: A Brief Survey of Polish Cinema 1946 - Present

Part of the Focus on Poland Strand


Tickets available from 10:00 on the day of the event- Wed 28 June, 17:50, Filmhouse.

Polish cinema erupted out of the post-WWII quagmire of Stalinist social-realism. A generation of gifted filmmakers learned their craft through an education at the Łódź Film School and training within state-organised ‘film units’ (Zespół Filmowy). Names like Andrzej Wajda, Roman Polański and Krzysztof Kieślowski are well established within European cinephile circles. However, this lecture will examine the creative peaks and troughs of Polish cinematic output - as well as its industry structures - through seven decades of cinema, poring over classic works and drawing attention to some hidden gems.
