Although Poland has produced visionaries like Polanski, Kieslowski, and Wajda, and the country's film industry has had an outsize impact on the history of cinema, the films themselves remain relatively unknown in Japan. This festival, now in its second year, aims to correct that. The program centers around ten 1960s masterpieces, including Skolimowski's 'Walkover' and Konwicki's 'Salto', and also features seven movies by Poland's greatest living director, Andrzej Wajda. Unfortunately Wajda's recent biopic of Lech Walesa is not included, but at least visitors can view rare, Communist-era children's cartoons in addition to the main screenings.
