New York City-based readers! The great Martin Scorsese is about to give you a one of a kind opportunity to explore the magnificent world of classic Polish cinema. For just 12 busy days Film Society of Lincoln Center will turn into a hot destination for all movie aficionados, who might feel that their film education can't be really complete without the experience of seeing some of the greatest Polish pictures ever made on the big screen.

Starting tomorrow (February 5) you will be able to see not only many beloved and celebrated works directed by the country's major creators of the post-war film movement, but also a number of rare gems that even many Poles are probably not familiar with. Due to countless circumstances Poland's cinema is still somewhat undervalued and many important works remain vastly underseen. Through events like this more people around the world are able to get acquainted with the unbelievably rich and impressive Polish film history.

Browse the gallery below and check out the full schedule. For more information visit the project's official website.

Man Of Iron (Człowiek z żelaza) (1981) 153 min (Opening Night)

Director: Andrzej Wajda
Country: Poland
Wajda’s Palme d’Or-winning, Oscar-nominated masterpiece follows the workers’ strike in Gdańsk in August 1980 that led to the formation of the Solidarity trade union.
