Wajda in Los Angeles for Oscars

2008-02-21

Polish director Andrzej Wajda has already left for Los Angeles, where his film Katyń is one of the five contenders for best foreign-language film at Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony. Special screenings of his intensely personal film were organised for members of the Film Academy through the London-based Premiere Agency which is handling promotion.

Wajda, whose father was one of the 20,000 Polish officers massacred by the Soviets in Katyń Forest and elsewhere 1940, has three previous Oscar nominations. He was singled out for The Promised Land (1974), The Maids of Wilko (1970) and Man of Iron (1981), for which he also received the Palme d'Or at Cannes. He received an Oscar for Life Achievement in 2000.
