WARSAW — Oscar winner Andrzej Wajda is preparing to film the third part of his “Man of …” trilogy.
The two previous parts were respectively set in the ’70s (“Man of Marble,” 1976) and in the ’80s, when the Solidarity movement was born (the Cannes Palme d’Or winner “Man of Iron,” 1981). Part three will portray contemporary Poland, after the political change.
Story will revolve around the divorced Tomczyk couple of the previous films driving through Poland and reflecting on freedom. Krystyna Janda and Jerzy Radziwilowicz will return as the leads.
Producer Michal Kwiecinski of Arka Film said shooting will begin in March. Budget is 4 million zloty ($1 million). He hopes to gain funding from the Polish TV and Film Studio in Warsaw as well as state subsidies.
