Showtimes and location

Film description

Halina Prugar-Ketling had an enduring partnership with Andrzej Wajda, working with him for over twenty years. Despite this long relationship, Wajda rarely credited her, as Prugar-Ketling asserted "he never recognized me and my work publicly. Even worse, he kept saying that he does the editing himself in the evenings." A landmark of Polish cinema, Man of Marble follows Agnieszka, a young film student in 1970s Krakow making a diploma film about a 1950s bricklayer and proletarian hero, Birkut. Regarded as Wajda’s most important work, it is Prugar-Ketling’s editing work that gives vital energy and urgency to this political epic.
