Stefania Zahorska

Frymus, Agata

Stefania Zahorska was one of the most respected Polish film critics of the interwar period. Herpioneering approach toward moving pictures, which she considered to be a new artistic form,arose from her background as an art scholar. Fascinated by Impressionism and painting thatmoved away from literal representation toward abstraction, she saw a similar potential in avant-garde filmmaking. For Zahorska, an ideal film formula would arise from a “mixture of poetics,montage and documentary.”
