Abstract / Summary
This peer-reviewed article had started as a conference speech under the same title delivered by its author at Columbia University in New York. While participating the ASN Convention 2003, the author found out that there were facts in Polish film history, which she chose to discuss, that even though of great academic interest had been rarely discussed or analysed by Western scholars. Thus, the publication aimed at presenting the ways the film industry under Communists operated in the so-called Eastern Block through case study of Polish Film director Aleksander Ford. The study concludes with a crucial role of filmmaker’s personality and his approach to individual vs. collective dilemmas that served main variables in the development of not only individual careers but also filmmaking as such in the countries that had fallen into the zone of Soviet influence after World War Two.
