The 100th anniversary of the Polish cinematography has become a natural starting point for a nostalgic journey. Its path leads us from the naïve feature exercises originating in the 20s, through the quest to discover the film language during the silent movie era and the attempts made to compete with the foreign cinematographies of the 30s; from the war-time trauma to the restructuring anew, on the burnt-down house site, of the home movie industry following 1945; from the sparks of artistic creativity and independent thought struggling to overcome the meanders of the socialist political enclosure, up to the film achievements of the reborn Poland and to the recent film projects. The exhibition, put together by the Polish Film Institute, is organised in cooperation with the Embassy of Poland in Luxembourg.
