MISSION AT CAMERIMAGE 2018 – POLISH CINEMATOGRAPHERS

November 9, 2018 admin News

At Mission, we are fans of cinematography above pretty much anything else, so as we’re heading to Camerimage this weekend we thought we’d take a look at the Polish cinematography world and the Polish Film Competition at Camerimage 2018, and also highlight a few leading Polish cinematographers.

Witold’s grandson Piotr is a very talented young Polish cinematographer who has a movie, Breaking The Limits in competition at Camerimag, screening on Sunday. His father – also Piotr – is also a cinematographer as well and his younger brother Michał is too. That’s quite the talented family!

This very talented Polish DOP has two films in competition at Camerimage 2018 – Nina, directed by Olga Chajdas, and 53 Wars, directed by Ewa Bukowska. Both directors are making their directorial debut.

Another movie to look out for is Cold War, directed by Paweł Pawlikowski and shot by Lukasz Zal. This formidable duo won an Oscar for best foreign film for Ida, along with DOP Ryszard Lenczewski. Like Ida, Cold War was shot in beautiful black and white. It is featured in the main competition at Camerimage 2018.
