Description: "...These are sheer numbers and prizes that bear testimony to the past significance of Polish animation: 162 films exported in 1963 alone, 1974 proceeds from animated film exports higher than these from sales of feature films, dozens of highest prizes at most important festivals and competitions, Oscar for Zbigniew Rybczynski for "Tango", and so on, and so forth. The present anthology is the first attempt to make at least a part of the extremely extensive output of Polish animators available to wider audiences. (...) The two DVDs which we present to cinema lovers, did not have enough room to contain all the outstanding Polish animated films of the last six decades, nor present all the makers worthy of attention. We do hope, however, that the selection is representative enough to let those viewers, who are not very well familiar with the history of Polish animation, get to know it better, while to its enthusiasts, it will bring back almost thirty of its gems."
