Born in 1941, in Pińczów, Poland. Graduated in direction from PWSFTViT in Lodz (1973). Since then he has created 30 award-winning short films in which he concentrates on the lives of ordinary people who perceive moral laws and values as the only means of defending themselves against life’s adversities.
Contemplation of one’s own prospects and failures while remaining faithful to these principles is the main theme of his dramatic work, as seen in At Home (1975), Leisure Time (1979), Woman from the Provinces (1984), Taboo (1987), The Peddler (1990), Bachelor Life in a Foreign Country (1992), Two Moons (1993), The Day of a Big Fish (1996), and All the Saints (2002).
