Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema

Andrzej Wajda is the most prominent filmmaker in this robust series (and his 1958 Ashes and Diamonds the single greatest work) but the most rarely shown films are the 1960s historical extravaganzas: Alexander Ford’s Black Cross (1960), Wojciech Has’s adaptation of The Saragossa Manuscript (1964), and Jerzy Kawalerowicz’s Pharaoh (1965). Hard to see as well are two movies by novelist Tadeusz Konwicki: The Last Day of Summer (1958) and Jump (1965). All twenty-one films have been digitally restored.

Tickets are $13 for an individual film, or can be purchased in discounted multi-film packages. For more information, including a complete schedule of show times, see the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s website.
