11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 794 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Struggle for Form: Perspectives on Polish Avant-Garde Film 1916-1989 is the first comprehensive account of the Polish avant-grade film in English from its beginning in the early decades of the last century to the collapse of communism in 1989. Taking a broad understanding of avant-garde film, this collection includes writings on the pioneering work of the internationally acclaimed Franciszka and Stefan Themerson; the Polish Futurists' (Jalu Kurek, Anatol Stern) engagement with film; The Thaw and animation(Jan Lenica and Walerian Borowczyk, Andrzej Pawlowski, Zbigniew Rybczynski;) documentary (Natalia Brzozowska, Kazimierz Karabasz, Wojciech Wiszniewski), Polish émigré filmmakers (Roman Polan Jerzy Skolimowski, Andrzej Zulawski) as well as essays and documentation on the widely known Film Form Workshop (Józef Robakowski, Ryszard Wasko, Wojciech Bruszewski). Including the mixture of historical writing from early film magazines with commissioned eassays, this book constitutes an important source on the rich, complex and influential history of the Polish film avant-garde, which is presented from the perspective of both British (A.L. Ress, Jonathan Owen, Michael O'Pary) and Polish (Marcin GiZycki, Ryszard Kluszczynski, Kamila Kuc) authorities on the Subject. This volume is thus an indispensable introduction to the theories and practices of critically important avant-garde artists and filmmakers. Book jacket
Visions of Avant-Garde film : Polish cinematic experiments from expressionism to constructivism by Kamila Kuc( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Warsaw- and London-based filmmakers Franciszka and Stefan Themerson are often recognized internationally as pioneers of the 1930s Polish avant-garde. Yet, from the turn of the century to the end of the 1920s, Poland's literary and art scenes were also producing a rich array of criticism and early experiments with the moving image that set the stage for later developments in the avant-garde. In this comprehensive and accessible study, Kamila Kuc draws on myriad undiscovered archival sources to tell the history of early Polish avant-garde movements-Symbolism, Expressionism, Futurism, and Constructivism-and to reveal their impact on later practices in art cinema

Polish cinema in a transnational context by Ewa Mazierska( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The opening up of Poland economically and politically to global influences after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, coupled with the rise of transnational approaches to the study of film, presents ideal conditions for examining Polish cinema from a transnational vantage point. Yet not only have studies of Polish cinema remained largely within a national framework but Polish cinema, as well as many other Eastern European cinemas, has been virtually excluded from new research in transnational cinema. 'Polish cinema in a transnational context' addresses this lacuna in film studies, offering extended analysis of this national cinema's global influence. Contributors assess the reception of Polish films in Europe and North America, Polish international coproductions, the presence of Polish performers in foreign films, and the works of subversive émigré auteurs like Andrzej Żuławski and Walerian Borowczyk. The collection presents familiar films and filmmakers in a new and revealing light, while also focusing on lesser-known filmmakers and aspects of Polish cinema. The resulting volume moves the discussion beyond the border of Polish national belonging." --
