Andrzej Wajda spotted him in the Krakow theater school, who was currently preparing the screening of Monika Kotowska's story "We are alone in the world".  The film, however, was not realized due to its "moral ambiguity".  He was to partner Grażyna Staniszewska.

In 1979, he directed a film about the election of Karol Wojtyla as Pope.  Ten years later, he made a film about Wawel, but according to the producer, the tapes were stolen.
