Often described as 'the Polish Citizen Kane', Wajda's Man Of Marble is about the attempts of a determined young woman filmmaker Agnieszka (Krystyna Janda) to make a documentary about the Polish national hero Mateusz Birkut, a labourer who, in the early days of the Communist revolution, was hailed for his productivity feats and became as famous as any film star, only to disappear from the record books in 1952. Through interviews with his former wife, colleagues, friends and enemies who knew him, Birkut emerges as a man who believed in the socialist ideals and the workers revolution. Unlike many of his colleagues and compatriots Birkut refused to forgive and forget. His disappearance became, in effect, the unrelenting conscience of the revolution. However, the young filmmaker's hard-driving style and the content of her film unnerve the authorities, who thinks it's getting too close to a political nerve...

Not only regarded as one of the greatest, most important films in the history of Polish cinema, it is also one of the key films of the 1970s and one of the most compelling attacks on government corruption ever made.

This ground-breaking feature is presented in an all new HD digital restoration, and features exclusive, newly filmed interviews with director Andrzej Wajda, lead actress Krystyna Janda and renowned filmmaker Agnieszka Holland who was Assistant Director on Man Of Marble.
