Description The article summarizes the current research state of the key filiation of the Polish poetry Generation 68 and early films by Krzysztof Kieślowski, which is defining against “the undepicted world” (Julian Kornhauser a Adam Zagajewski) or “the fight against fake representation of language” (Slavoj Žižek), as described by Marek Haltof, a film scientist, in his work. In this respect, Haltof’s monograph draws on the literary-critical collection called “Świat nie przedstawiony” (1974) by Kornhauser and Zagajewski which is recognized as a program manifesto for Generation 68. He sees the filiation with Kieślowski’s films as various manifestations of one cultural tendency in 1968–1975 and thus he is limited to early documentary films. The aim of the paper is to broaden Haltof’s concept by the conclusions of the second key work characterizing Generation 68, which is the study by Stanisław Barańczak called “Nieufni i zadufani” (1971) and describe the metafictional strategy of the distrust of language as a significant feature of Kieślowski’s film work in all its periods as well as genres, that is both documentary and fiction films from 1968 to 1994.
