Abstract / Summary

A critique is presented of the epic films "Katyń" and "Pan Tadeusz" (The Last Foray in Lithuania) by Polish director Andrzej Wajda, focusing on themes of nationalism and anti-Soviet political views in the films. Government censorship of films before 1990, Poland's transition from communism to capitalism, and the depiction of World War II historical events in the films are discussed, as well as themes of nostalgia and Polish-Russian relations.
