Summary/Abstract: The history of Andrzej Wajda’s preparations to adapt Stefan Żeromski’s novel 'The Spring to Come' is one of the most dramatic chapters of the 'non-existent history' of Poland’s cinema. Forty years passed from the first mention in which the director admits that he has an idea to adapt the novel to the note in which he finally gives it up. Five scripts were prepared in the period. Wajda claimed that 'The Spring to Come' should be his major film. However, it was not made. Telling the story of the unrealized idea and explaining why Wajda did not carry out the project, Lubelski fills in the gaps in the history of Polish cinema, including Wajda’s artistic biography, and makes special comments on the issues.
