Andrzej Wajda film will shine new light on Lech Walesa

3 April 2011 11:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Oscar-winning Polish film-maker says he will tell the story of how an uneducated worker triggered the collapse of communism

Poland has had a complicated relationship with Lech Walesa. The love-hate of past years, however, is danger of fading into indifference and neglect. Poles are often surprised when foreigners ask after him, as if he is a half-forgotten uncle.

Now Andrzej Wajda, a veteran Oscar-winning film director and, at 85, something of a national treasure himself, has decided enough is enough. A jaundiced, dyspeptic, post-modernist nation will be made to look again at "the hero in its midst", with a biopic recounting the Solidarity struggle.

"The Walesa figure is necessary nowadays in the reality of contemporary Poland where everyone is quarrelling with each other. There is a nasty atmosphere of accusation flying around and we need to be able to refer back to a figure from national history," Wajda said at his Warsaw studios. »
