Agnieszka Barczyk

A journalist at the time of PRL. The similarities between the real image and movies

Cite: Agnieszka Barczyk, Dziennikarz w czasach Polski Ludowej. Podobieństwa między wizerunkiem rzeczywistym i filmowym, "Kultura - Media - Teologia", 2013( 15) nr 4, s. 61-72.

Analyzing the image of the journalist in selected films completed in PRL (Człowiek z żelaza, Człowiek z marmuru and Bez znieczulenia by Andrzej Wajda, Weryfikacja by Mirosław Gronowski and Mniejsze niebo by Janusz Morgenstern), we can see many similarities to descriptions of journalists of this period presented in the theoretical studies. Interestingly, this relationship exists despite the censorship of films of those times. This relationship confirms that the film may be a carrier of knowledge about the past – especially if it can be called modern in the reporting period.
