A revolutionary author who, through a deep and impassioned immersion in the human and social soul, questioned his own times and the pillars of a complex and sometimes painful contemporaneity.
His cinema, which includes films such as Kanal, Innocent Sorcerers, Without Anesthesia, Landscape After the Battle, Man of Iron, Danton, Katyn, Walesa – Man of Hope, is a unique cultural heritage – essential for the understanding of the underground movements of History and humanity; and of the meaning of Destiny itself.
