Silesia Film Unit

(Zespół Filmowy "ŚLĄSK")
   Established in 1972 in Katowice, Silesia was the only film unit outside of Warsaw. The production company was founded by Kazimierz Kutz, who headed it until 1978, when he was replaced by poet Ernest Bryll (1978-1983). Ryszard Kłyś and Feliks Netz (1974-1979) and Michał Komar (1979-1983) served as literary directors. Silesia produced sixty-three films (including television films and television series), among them several noted works such as Through and Through (1973), directed by Grzegorz Królikiewicz, and Hospital under the Hourglass (1973), directed by Wojciech J. Has. The list of films also includes popular television series The Career of Nikodem Dyzma (1980, Jan Rybkowski) and critically acclaimed Ash Wednesday (Popielec, 1982, released 1984, Ryszard Ber). The studio was terminated by the authorities in 1983.
