Historia polskiego filmu dokumentalnego (1896–1944)
of Polish Documentary Films (1896–1944)]. Poznań 2014. Wydawnictwo Naukowe Uniwersytetu

nr 13. Pp. 688, Figs. 130. Polish text with a summary in English.
This book reconstructs changes in the history of non-fiction films in the Polish lands that were
annexed by three partitioning powers – during the Great War as well as during the period of
Poland’s independence and occupation. Thus, it shows how non-fiction cinema functioned at
the turn of the 20th century and how it grew in importance during the Great War. The book
presents the first decade of the period of Poland’s independence and several overlapping di-
rections in the development of documentaries: film chronicles (newsreels), current affairs
programs as well as films promoting knowledge about Poland, i.e. Polish history and tradition,
which were mainly aimed to unite the Polish lands in the minds of Poles from the territories
that had previously been annexed by three partitioning powers. In the 1930s, following several
years of efforts to introduce sound to cinema, non-fiction films became more involved in the
state’s current politics than before. In the mid-1930s documentary cinema started to attract at-
tention. These documentaries, some of which were medium- and full-length films, were shot
by filmmakers and cinematographers who were already fully aware of the need to extensively
document economic, social and cultural life. The author shows how these films functioned as
information sources and portrays documentary cinema’s relation to the social, political and
artistic spheres. The final part of the book deals with documentaries that were made during
the war and occupation. This book is the first comprehensive study of this kind that examines
non-fiction cinema. It contains a catalog of Polish non-fiction films that were screened in movie
theaters in the years 1896-1944. This is the first such catalog that has been created in Poland.
