Languages of publication
The article discusses Piotr Kurpiewski’s book Historia na ekranie Polski Ludowej [History on the screenof Polish People’s Republic]. Kurpiewski uses the concept of the politics of history to show the relationship between Polish postwar ﬁlms and their political context. He examines the production process of individual ﬁlms from the moment of their making to the moment(s) of their reception. From this point of view the historical ﬁlm becomes one of the main ideological instruments, serving to legitimize the then sociopolitical regime.
