He is one of the most important international film directors and his successes are countless:
Andrzej Wajda. The documentary titled Signed by Andrzej Wajda is shedding light on a lesser known relationship - the relationship between Wajda’s Films and the fine arts. We explore this relationship through exciting film clips and impressive images of paintings and sculptures. The film and theater director Wajda has also made a name for himself with drawings and water colors. Especially the architecture and paintings of his native Poland and their increased historic symbolism have functioned as motifs for his movies. In this documentary Wajda offers an insight into polish national art, their content and their form which is virtually unknown to a German audience.
In talking to his friend filmmaker Andrzej Brzozowski Wajda lays open his very personal relationship to the culture of his Polish homeland. This documentary is a fascinating panoramic view of Polish culture and the motivations and works of this Polish director.
