Born in 1933 in France, Polanski grew up nomadically in Poland, where he managed to partake in cinema. Taking up acting in his twenties lead to working on short films. Polanski forged a solid film-making status in Poland, but returned to France where his international recognition bloomed.
Roman possessed Hollywood with 1968’s Rosemary’s Baby, however returned to Europe following the murder of his wife by Charles Manson. He re-seduced America with Chinatown (1974), but fled once more upon his conviction for statutory rape.
Nominated for five Oscars and winning for 2002’s The Pianist, Polanski is a legendary but polarizing figure in film-making.
