RECEPTION OF CONTEMPORARY RUSSIAN CINEMA IN POLAND
This article is an attempt to analyse the problem of reception of contemporary Russian cinema in Poland. The author, appealing to the various types of statistical compositions, points to several basic reasons of the small interest in Russian cinematography in our country. “Political” problems are the first reason — especially in the 1990s resulting in some aversion to the whole Russian culture. The second reason is of an “artistic” nature — the collapse of film production in Russia led to the fall of the quality of Russian production, which resulted in, for example, less interest in it of Polish critics and film scholars. The third reason is of an “economic” nature and is connected with the domination of American films, pushing productions made in other countries out of markets.
