Record number of Polish premieres—forty-five. 1986 Popularity of adaptations of national literature such as Dziewczęta z Nowolipek (The Girls from Nowolipki) and Rajska jabłoń (Crab Apple Tree), both directed by Barbara Sass. Ryszard Ber’s Cudzoziemka (Foreigner). Janusz Majewski’s C. K. Dezerterzy (Deserters). Witold Leszczyński’s Siekierezada (Axiliad) wins the Festival of Polish Films. Jerzy Zaorski’s Jezioro Bodeńskie (Bodensee) wins the Locarno Film Festival. 1987 New film legislation abolishes the state monopoly in the sphere of film production and distribution.

At the beginning of the 1970s, Wajda produced a number of important adaptations revolving around the characters’ psychology rather than the historical and political contexts. They include Landscape after Battle (1970), based on Tadeusz Borowski’s short stories; Birchwood (1970), an adaptation of Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz’s short story; The Wedding (1973), an adaptation of the canonical Polish drama by Stanisław Wyspiański; The Promised Land (1975), based on Władysław Stanisław Reymont’s novel about the birth of Polish capitalism in Łódź; and The Shadow Line (1976), a lesser-known adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s story.

The most prestigious productions after 1918 included The Promised Land (1927), codirected by Aleksander Hertz and Zbigniew Gniazdowski, and Pan Tadeusz (1928), directed by Ryszard Ordyński. The latter film, adapted from Mickiewicz’s book-length poem, became the focal point of the celebrations of the tenth anniversary of Polish independence. The most popular Polish films made after 1945 were also based on respected literary sources. For example, the year 1960 marks the production of the first postwar historical epic—and the most popular Polish film ever—another adaptation of Henryk Sienkiewicz, The Teutonic Knights directed by Aleksander Ford.
