Since then, the Polish film industry has produced a diverse body of work, ranging from patriotic melodramas and epic adaptations of the national literary canon to Yiddish cinema and films portraying the corrupted side of communism. Poland has produced several internationally known films, including Andrzej Wajdas war trilogy, A Generation (1955), Kanal (1957), and Ashes and Diamonds (1958), Roman Polanskis Knife in the Water (1962), and Andrzej Munks The Passenger (1963).

Often performing specific political and cultural duties for their nation, Polish filmmakers were well aware of their role as educators, entertainers, social activists, and political leaders. The A to Z of Polish Cinema fills the gap in film scholarship, presenting an extensive factual survey of Polish film.

Through its chronology, introductory essay, appendixes, bibliography, and cross-referenced dictionary entries on films, directors, actors, producers, and film institutions, a balanced picture of the richness of Polish cinema is presented. Readers with professional interest in cinema will welcome this new work, which would be useful for any senior undergraduate or post-graduate courses in film studies.
