Languages of publication
Film about art has usually belonged to a marginalized genre. Th is article discusses two types of f ilm within the genre: documentaries and creative works. Th e f irst category includes biographies and documentations of the artistic process. An example of this would be Interpretacje, directed by Jarosław Brzozowski. Th e second category utilizes symbols, fantasy, and dramatization. The artist often appears also as an actor. Several components, such as a subjective narration, unique cinematography, use of light, poetic text, and use of montage help establish the charm of the masterpiece. Less used biographical motifs of ten attempt to create a new quality to the genre. Th e best example of such an approach is the ‘f ilm-painting’ of the portrait of Tadeusz Brzozowski in the work Brzuch as directed by Andrzej Papuziński.
