The Red and the White: The Cinema of people's Poland

Be the first to review this product

The Red and the White The Cinema of Peoples Poland takes a fascinating look at the history of post war Polish cinema, and how it was affected by the political, social and cultural upheavals throughout the period 1947 to 89. This timely study reevaluates the legacy of Socialist Realism, the representation of the war, cinematic portrayals of national myth and cultural history, literary adaptation and surrealism, and discourses of exile and national identity. Although paying particular reference to the work of Krzysztof Kieslowski and Andrzej Wajda, this book considers the contribution of a wide range of filmmakers, including Jerzy Skolimowski, Krzysztof Zanussi, Agnieska Holland, Andrzej Munk, Jerzy Kawalerowicz, Wojciech Has and Roman Polanski. The volume also includes unique primary archival research into the role of state sponsored censorship, and coverage of Polish Jewish representations in film. Among the many films discussed are A Generation, Eroica, Ashes and Diamonds, Family Life, The Promised Land, The Hour Glass Sanatorium, Hands Up, Decalogue 8, Europa, Europa and The Double Life of Veronique.
