Abstract / Summary
This research based study was peer reviewed and published in the leading film studies journal in Poland.
Elia Kazan is seen as a controversial artist; on the one hand he is regarded as a director of masterpieces, but on the other he is remembered as a “friendly witness” in the 1950s when Hollywood was politically infiltrated by the Senator Joseph McCarthy committee. There is no doubt Kazan was an individualist who had always fought for freedom in the cinema.
The author here shows the artistic road of the director Elia Kazan, his problems with censorship, demonstrating in this way the paradox of democracy and American culture. Research materials included traditional and visual texts from various academic disciplines, including sociology, political studies, and film studies. The piece opens the new research paths for both film studies and American studies in Poland and touches upon contemporary scholarly and political debates.
