Man of celluloid

Issue section: 

Thanks to a new high definition restoration, Polish director Andrzej Wajda's iconic 1976 film "Man of Marble" has the chance of a second life.

Wajda became famous in the 1950s for his war trilogy which included the masterpiece "Ashes and Diamonds". These were tragedies of the human condition in the face of profound moral dilemmas. His heroes often struggle for freedom or dignity against overwhelming odds. Wajda's stories are deeply embedded in Polish history, yet they have a universal message appealing to a wider audience.
