Though born in the Ukraine, filmmaker Jerzy Domaradzki is most closely associated with Poland's film industry. Following his 1974 graduation from the Lodz Film School with a degree in film direction, Domaradzki got his start working as an assistant and second unit director. He then worked with Andrzej Wajda for the "X" film unit. Domaradzki made his feature-film debut in 1975 with Obrazki z Zycia/Pictures From a Life. In addition to his subsequent movie career, Domaradzki also directs television and theatrical productions. In the late '80s, he moved to Australia and in 1988 was appointed director-in-residence at the Australian Film, Television, and Radio School in Sydney.
