Author Talk: Hollywood PL by Agnieszka Niezgoda






Twenty-three biographies.  Four years of private encounters on two continents.  Hundres of hours of conversations at homes in Los Angeles, Malibu, New York Paris, London, and Warsaw.  All are documented in Agnieszka Niezgoda's Hollywood PL, a richly illustrated book that tells the stories of acclaimed Polish-born filmmakers, whose vision left an indelible mark on today's Hollywood.  Those featured include director Agnieszka Holland (In Darkness), composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek (Finding Neverland), and directors of photography Adam Holender (Midnight Cowboy) and Dariusz Wolski (Pirates of the Caribbean).  Their personal stories constitute a behind-the-scenes look at life in Hollywood and a moving portrait of the immigrant in pursuit of the American Dream.
