“There are many revelations in the ‘Masterpieces of Polish Cinema’ series and whether you’re familiar with some of these films or not, it’s an incredible opportunity to discover for yourself the great power of Polish cinema, on the big screen in brilliantly restored digital masters.”
Organized by Martin Scorsese’s non-profit organization The Film Foundation and released by Milestone Films, this essential series features brand-new restorations of 21 classic films from some of Poland’s most accomplished and lauded filmmakers, spanning the period 1957 to 1987. Curated by Mr. Scorsese himself, the series premiered at the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York in February and is now travelling to select cities across North America. All films will be presented in brilliantly re-mastered and newly-subtitled DCPs.
