This Polish animated film anthology proves that although much is written about the innovativeness and experimentation of Czech animation, Polish animators--especially the third generation of postwar filmmakers that includes Walerian Borowczyk and Jan Lenica--were developing a truly unique voice, style, and mode of production. This two-disc set features 28 animated films, many of which have won international awards: House (Walerian Borowczyk/Jan Lenica, 1958), The Change of Guard (Wlodzimierz Haupe/Halina Bielinska, 1958), School (Borowczyk, 1958), Maze (Lenica, 1961), Dalliance (Kazimierz Urbanski, 1962), Red and Black (Witold Giersz, 1963), Armchair (Daniel Szczechura, 1963), Cages (Miroslaw Kijowicz, 1966), Everything Is a Number (Stefan Schabenbeck, 1966), The Horse (Witold Giersz, 1967), Stairs (Schabenbeck, 1968), Traveling (Szczechura, 1970), Son (Ryszard Czekala, 1970), Apel (Czekala, 1970), Way (Miroslaw Kijowicz, 1971), Soup (Zbigniew Rybczynski, 1974), Banquet (Zofia Oraczewska, 1976), Reflections (Jerzy Kucia, 1979), Ostry Film Zaangazowany (Julian Antonisz, 1979), Tango (Zbigniew Rybczynski, 1980), Portrait Infidel (Ewa Bibanska, 1981), Solo on Ugorze (Jerzy Kalina, 1981), Black Candle Extinguisher (Piotr Dumala, 1983), Mild (Dumala, 1985), Race (Marek Serafinski, 1989), Tuning Instruments (Jerzy Kucia, 2000), Chair (Tomek Baginski, 2002), and Ichthys (Marek Skrobecki, 2005).
