Personal Quote:

[on Krzysztof Kieslowski] In 1974, we became close friends and began to creatively collaborate. He also tried several times to help me by petitioning for me to be accepted into Lodz, but it was too difficult. (...) He was already a person of great authority. Everyone looked up to him. But he was much more fun then. Success did not free him. He seemed to suffer under the weight of responsibility. ... See more »

Trivia:

One of her unrealized projects has been the story of Jews from the Warsaw ghetto. The screenplay of the distinguished Polish writer Jerzy Stefan Stawinski was ready in 1981. Boguslaw Linda was planned for the main part. However, there was no political climate for the movie and therefore it has never been shot. See more »
