Maser Polish director, Andrzej Wajda, received an Honorary Academy Award in 1999 for almost five decades of work, beginning with his stunning war trilogy detailing Polish resistance to Soviet and Nazi occupation during WWII. During the 50s, a young Wajda Created three brilliant war dramas about the tragedy of the Polish resistance movement.
A Generation (1955). The story of a wayward teen living on the outskirts of occupied Warsaw who joins the underground in a desperate bid to liberate his homeland, Wadja's style was brutal and confronting yet artful and expressionistic.
Canal (1957), sees members of the doomed Warsaw Uprising escape into the hell of the city sewers as the Nazis approach, and won the Special Jury Prize at Canned, giving Wajda international acclaim,
Ashes and Diamonds (1958), which interweaves the fate of Poland with one man, a resistance fighter who becomes an anti-communist assassin at the end of the war but also finds love.

A Generation (1955)
A Generation is the first of Polish filmmaker Andrzej Wajda's 'underground trilogy'-and also Wajda's first-ever feature film. Originally titled Pokolenie, the film dissects the impact that World War II had on the youth of Poland. Tadevsz Lomnicki plays an impressionable young Warsaw resident who falls in love with resistance leader Ursula Modrzinska. The passion they feel towards their cause is inextricably entwined with the intensity of their feelings towards one another. During several crucial moments, the director contrasts the 'official' version of wartime events with the actual facts (many experienced first-hand by Wajda), partly as a means of explaining the peacetime disillusionment of so many young Poles. As a result, the film was subject to an overabundance of government interference when it was first released. Watch closely in the Underground scenes of A Generation and you'll spot a young Roman Polanski.

Canal (1957)
The second of Polish director Andrzej Wajda's WWII trilogy, following Pokolenie (A Generation) and preceding Popiol I diament (Ashes and Diamonds), Kanal is the most physically harrowing of the set. Based on the experiences of Jerzy Stefan Stawinski, a Polish patriot who participated in the battle for Warsaw in 1939 as an 18-year-old and in the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, the action takes place in the last week of the 63-day Uprising, as the Nazis hunt down what few freedom fighters remain. A band of Poles takes to the sewers in hopes of escaping, but they become disoriented by the darkness and the fumes of the waist-deep filth. Whenever the Poles try to emerge for orientation or relief, the Germans are there to greet them with a hail of bullets. Kanal was Wajda's coming-out film; it won two prizes at the 1957 Cannes Film Festival and clicked with both European and American audiences, in spite of its grueling story and pessimistic tone.

Ashes & Diamonds (1965)
Set in the early 19th century, the story concerns the Polish legion led by General Dombrowski (Daniel Olbrychski), who fought on the side of Napoleon Bonaparte (Janusz Zakrzenski). The original running time was cut down to 160 minutes for international release. Popioly was shown in competition at the 1966 Cannes Film Festival.

In 1999, Polish director Andrzej Wajda received an Honorary Academy Award for his body of work-more than thirty-five feature films, beginning with A Generation in 1955. Wajda's second film, Kanal (1957), the first ever made about the Warsaw uprising, secured him the Special Jury Prize at Cannes and started him on the path to international acclaim, secured with the releases of his masterpiece, Ashes and Diamonds in 1958. These three groundbreaking films ushered in the 'Polish School' movement and later became known as the 'War Trilogy.' But each boldly stands on its own-a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, the struggle for personal and national freedom, and Wajda's unique contribution to homeland and world cinema.
