A study of Polish filmmakers,

A study of Polish filmmakers, and how many of them feel at a loss in their new, European environment, without the constraints of censorship. Milos Forman talks about the irony of artistic repression generating more creativity: "The censorship was wonderful - they tell you exactly what you should make a film about, then you are free to say anything. Very often you don't know what to say, but you know what's forbidden - then you know what to say." And Polanski and Kieslowski made some of their best and most political movies while working with censors.
