HBO Directors Dialogue: Agnieszka Holland


75 minutes

Agnieszka Holland has a career like no one else’s. She studied cinema in Czechoslovakia in the late 60s and was imprisoned for six weeks for her participation in the student uprising that followed the Soviet invasion after Prague Spring (dramatized in her extraordinary mini-series Burning Bush, showing in this year’s NYFF). She began working for Krzysztof Zanussi and Andrzéj Wajda, and she has slowly built an extraordinary body of work, including Europa Europa and Olivier, Olivier, which opened the 1992 NYFF; her stunning 1993 adaptation of The Secret Garden; the Oscar-nominated In Darkness (2012); and numerous episodes of some of the best of episodic television, including “The Wire” and “The Killing.”
