This course is an introduction to classics of Polish cinema. We will watch films by Poland?s best-known film directors to explore their key aesthetic, historical and philosophical concerns. Among directors whose works we will view are Roman Polanski, Andrzej Wajda, Wojciech Has, Jerzy Stuhr, Barbara Saas, Kazimierz Kutz, Andrzej Kondriatuk, Jerzy Skolimowski, Agnieszka Holland and Krzysztof Kieslowski. Using the analytic language of literature, such as plot, character, setting, point of view, we will consider each film?s narrative content (story) as well as its formal features (its visual poetics).
