Jerzy Kawalerowicz

Biography:Jerzy Kawalerowicz (born January 19, 1922) is a Polish film director.

Kawalerowicz is one of Poland's most talented post-World War II directors, noted for his powerful, detail-oriented imagery. He has been versatile, his subjects ranging from historical dramas to intense psychological studies. After working as an assistant director, he made his directorial debut with the 1951 film The Village Mill (Gromada). He has been a leading figure in the Polish Film School, and his films Shadow (Cień, 1956) and Night Train (Pociąg, 1959) constitute some of that movement's best work. Other noted works by Kawalerowicz include Mother Joan of the Angels (Matka Joanna od aniolów, 1961) and a 1966 adaptation of Polish novelist Bolesław Prus' historical novel Pharaoh.

In 1955 Kawalerowicz was appointed head of the prestigious KADR production unit. He held that position again in 1972. In 1983 he alienated himself from many of his peers by signing communist government reports condemning all filmmakers aligned with Solidarity.
