The difficulty of film adaptation. Andrzej Wajda and Heart of Darkness
The purpose of the article is to characterize and analyze the possible shape of a film adaptation of Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad, which Andrzej Wajda never accomplished. Through using archival materials, notes, letters, scripts and screenplays the author of the article reconstructs the creative work of the director on the idea of the movie and the issues which eventually prevented a finalization of this project. The article refers not only to Wajda’s unrealized film, but also to Conrad themes present in the director’s creations.
