Jerzy Skolimowski is one of the most original Polish directors and one of only a handful who has gained genuine recognition abroad. This is the first monograph, written in English, to be devoted to his cinema. It covers Skolimowski's career from his early successes in Poland, such as Identification Marks: None and Barrier, through his emigre films, Deep End, Moonlighting and The Lightship, to his return to Poland where, in 2008, he made the internationally acclaimed Four Nights with Anna. Ewa Mazierska addresses the main features of Skolimowski's films, such as their affinity to autobiographism and surrealism, while discussing their characters, narratives, visual style, soundtracks, and the uses of literature. She draws on a wide range of cinematic and literary texts, situating Skolimowski's work within the context of Polish and world cinema, and drawing parallels between his work and that of two directors, with whom he tends to be compared, Roman PolaA ski and Jean-Luc Godard. 'Ewa Mazierska's monograph is the first book-length study of his [Jerzy Skolimowski's] work, nearly half a century after his emergence as a one-man Polish New Wave ...Mazierska eschews a chronological survey in favour of five themed essays . ..this approach allows her to make connections between outwardly disparate films and mount a convincing challenge to the received opinion that there are fundamental differences between his Polish and non-Polish output ...this is an important, desperately overdue book.' Sight & Sound Ewa Mazierska is Professor of Contemporary Cinema, Department of Humanities, University of Central Lancashire. Her publications include Crossing New Europe: The European Road Movie (Wallflower Press, 2006), Dreams and Diaries: The Cinema of Nanni Moretti (Wallflower Press, 2004) and From Moscow to Madrid: Postmodern Cities, European Cinema (I.B. Tauris, 2003), all co-authored with Laura Rascaroli and Women in Polish Cinema (Berghahn Books, 2006), co-authored with ElA bieta Ostrowska.
It is so easy to waste time, sometimes thinking about what we are lacking and maybe feeling sorry for ourselves, instead of getting up and going, as we never know just what is around the next corner of our lives.
Mike Wainwright has been many things in his varied life: sportsman, teacher, brass band member, mountain climber... the list goes on. From his Salvation Army beginnings in a small town in Lancashire and beyond to his current life in Africa, this open, honest and overwhelmingly human memoir tells the story of a life lived to the full. Mike is never afraid to change course and take up a new challenge; whether it is being thrown into playing in a rugby team or leaving his old life behind to move to Africa and find love again. Watch the world as it changes around him, but, despite these changes, Mike is a man who makes every second count.
