Personal Quote:

I do miss the times when cinema, and the arts in general, seemed to mean much more to people. On the other hand, older material like this is now available in ways it never was before, in this digital age. I used to think that film has the life span of a butterfly, but now it has the life of a turtle.


Retrospective at the 9th New Horizons Film Festival (2009). See more »


Nearly always worked with composer Wojciech Kilar (until Kilar's death in 2013) Also often works with actor Tadeusz Bradecki. See more »
