From 1992 to 1994 he was Member of Presidential Council for Culture.


From 1989 to 1991 Wajda was elected Senator of the Republic of Poland.

He was Member of "Solidarity" Lech Walesa Council (1981-1989).


Wajda was President of Polish Film Association (1978-1983).


The story of a film student who traces the life of defamed "hero" in Czlowiek z marmuru (1977) was a deconstruction of the false impressions that official propaganda was using to brainwash the public.


Andrzej Wajda is an Academy Award-wining director. He is the most prominent filmmaker in Poland known for The Promised Land (1975), Man of Iron (1981), and Katyn (2007).

His Oscar-nominated The Promised Land (1975) was a work of multi-layered allegory and Symbolism.


The shooting of workers in the final scenes was actually unmasking of the official politics of killing workers in the Soviet Union in 1962, under Nikita Khrushchev, and in Poland a few years later.


His award-winning Kanal (1957) and Ashes and Diamonds (1958) concluded the trilogy about life in Poland during WWII. Although he was under pressure from the Soviet-dominated Polish authorities, Wajda positioned himself as an artist who was above the conflict. He still managed to show the undeclared civil war between two anti-Nazi Polish forces, which were divided by political ideology: the Polish communists and the partisans - folk heroes of the Home Army.


Considered the most seminal Polish director, responsible for leading the "Polish school" of filmmaking, recognized after "the political thaw" of 1956.

In 1939, Poland was invaded by the Nazi Germany and Soviet Union.

Later, Wajda described the influential and eye-opening experience from seeing French avant-garde films, like Ballet mécanique (1924) by artist-director Fernand Léger.


Father was an officer in the Polish army, born around 1900. His mother worked as a teacher at Ukrainian school. After his promotion they moved to Suwalki where Andrzej was born.
