Martin Scorsese Presents: Masterpieces of Polish Cinema 05/04-07-03

A series of seventeen films from some of Poland’s most accomplished and lauded filmmakers, spanning the period from 1957- 1987. In December 2011, filmmaker Martin Scorsese traveled to Poland to accept an honorary doctoral degree from The Polish National Film, Television, and Theatre School in Łódź. There, Mr. Scorsese met with digital restoration expert Jedrzej Sabliński, and the two men came up with the idea of a North American tour of a series of restored Polish cinema classics. Chosen by Mr. Scorsese from an extensive catalogue of digitally restored films, each film has been digitally re-mastered and brilliantly restored on newly subtitled DCPs. The program was created and organized by Mr. Scorsese’s non-profit organization, The Film Foundation.
