Domaradzki, Jerzy

   Director and scriptwriter, graduate of the Warsaw University (1970) and the Łódź Film School (1974). Domaradzki started his career at the beginning of the 1970s working as a second director with Janusz Majewski, Janusz Morgenstern, and Andrzej Wajda, among others. In 1975 he contributed a novella called Romance (Romans) to a seven-part film, Pictures from Life (Obrazki z życia), produced for the film unit X by some of the future creators of the Cinema of Distrust, including Agnieszka Holland, Feliks Falk, and Barbara Sass-Zdort. In 1977, together with Holland and Paweł Kędzierski, Domaradzki directed another generational film, Screen Tests (Zdjęcia próbne). In 1981 he made an important film dealing with the Stalinist period, The Big Run (Wielki bieg), released by the authorities as late as 1987. After making several popular films in Poland, including The Beast (Bestia, 1979), The Planet "Tailor" (Planeta krawiec, 1984), and the underestimated Cupid's Bow (Łuk Erosa, 1988), Domaradzki continued his career in Australia. In that country he directed two critically acclaimed films: Struck by Lightning (1990) and Lilian's Story (1996).
   Other films: The Long Wedding Night (Długa noc poślubna, TV, 1976), The Laureate (Laureat, 1980), Three Mills (Trzy młyny, 1984), Legend of the White Horse (children's film, Poland-United States, codirected with Janusz Morgenstern, 1987).
