By Kamila Kuc | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

THE FOLLOWING PEOPLE helped make this book a reality. The approach of my PhD supervisor, Ian Christie, has been instrumental to the methodological backbone of this study. Michael O’Pray’s understanding of the complexities of international film avant-gardes resonates throughout this book. I thank my external examiners, Katarzyna Murawska-Muthesius and Ewa Mazierska, for their enthusiasm for this book (and various other related projects). I am grateful to Marcin Giżycki and Ryszard Kluszczyński for their advice during different stages of my initial research. I also thank Marcin for reviewing the manuscript. For this, I am also indebted to an anonymous reviewer, whose suggestions helped me to critically revisit aspects of this book. I thank my friends and colleagues, particularly Elżbieta Busłowska, Dominic Topp, and Michael O’Pray, for their comments on the various drafts. I also wish to thank Joanna Zylinska and Gary Hall for the generous advice during the final preparation of the manuscript. I am indebted to Robert Devcic, Jasia Reichardt, and Nick Wadley for their kindness, time, and support during the last stages of this publication. Special thanks go to Timothy Quay and Marcello for providing comic relief, which is always much needed in the solitary process of writing.

I wish to thank Filmoteka Narodowa in Warsaw (Adam Wyżyński), Muzeum Sztuki in Lodz (Maciej Cholewiński), and Muzeum Narodowe in Warsaw (Eliza Kasprzyk) for their permission to use some of the images shown in this book. I thank Jasia Reichardt, Nick Wadley, and Robert Devcic for the stills from the Themersons’ archive. Finally, I am grateful to Paweł Łuczyński of Filmoteka Narodowa for making certain films digitally available for my viewing.

I also owe my gratitude to Janet Rabinowitch at Indiana University Press for her initial interest in this project, and to all my editors, Charlie Clark, David Miller, and, particularly, Raina Nadine Polivka and Janice E. Frisch, for their assistance in the process of writing and editing it.

I take full responsibility for any errors in this book. Thank you.
