New Digital Restoration!

Człowiek z żelaza (1981) dir Andrzej Wajda w/Jerzy Radziwiłowicz, Krystyna Janda, Marian Opania, Irena Byrska, Wiesława Kosmalska, Lech Wałęsa [154 min; DCP]
Wajda’s Palme d’Or-winning, Oscar®-nominated masterpiece follows the workers’ strike in Gdańsk in August 1980 that led to the formation of the Solidarity trade union.

“Politically laden with the opinion that a communist government is not preferred, the film must be viewed from a subjective perspective to fully grasp the weight of the events that take place. Wajda brilliantly assists the viewer […] to capture the true struggle of the people during Poland’s transformation.” Read Deana DiSalvio’s Brattle Film Notes essay on MAN OF IRON
