Trzos-Rastawiecki, Andrzej

(Andrzej Trzos, 1933-)
   Scriptwriter and director of documentary and feature films, Trzos-Rastawiecki established himself in the 1960s as a maker of documentary and television films. His first theatrical work, Leprosy (Trąd, 1971), originated a series of films offering an almost documentary-like experience. Trzos-Rastawiecki became known for his quasi-documentary examination of the sociological and psychological circumstances leading to crime in Record of Crime (Zapis zbrodni, 1974), in which he referred to an actual murder case, and Convicted (Skazany, 1976), featuring Wojciech Pszoniak. The 1978 film Wherever You Are, Mr. President (Gdziekolwiek jesteś panie prezydencie, 1978) featured Tadeusz Łomnicki in the role of the legendary prewar Warsaw president Stefan Starzyński, who perished without trace after his arrest in September 1939 by the invading Germans, and incorporated archival footage into black-and-white photography by cinematographer Zygmunt Samosiuk. In recent years, Trzos-Rastawiecki has directed documentary films as well as television series: The Archivist (Archiwista, 1995) and Marshall Piłsudski (Marszałek Piłsudski, 2001), the latter starring Zbigniew Zapasiewicz.
   Other films: I Am Against (Jestem przeciw, 1985), After the Fall (Po upadku, 1990).
