“Jurek”, the film by Paweł Wysoczański (PL, English subtitles)


A documentary film directed by Paweł Wysoczański is the first from many years film presenting Jerzy Kukuczka as a real, flesh and blood persons. The man who climbs up – not only literally, but also metaphorically and symbolically, from a socialist worker to an international media star. Jurek started his climbing career with no money and equipment and at the end he was the rightful king of the Himalayas.

4. “Mój pionowy świat” ("My vertical world") Jerzy Kukuczka, the album (PL)


“Mój pionowy świat” Jerzy Kukuczka, an album edition of the popular autobiographical book by Jerzy Kukuczka. It’s full of passion, commitment and dedication to mountains. It presents his way to climb all fourteen eight-thousenders, his emotional attitude to mountains and his climbing partners and a brief outline of Poland of that time and the situation the Polish Himalayan mountaineering developed in. But above all, it introduces readers into the psychological portrait of the best Polish mountaineer of XX century and is a great opportunity to “get to know” Jerzy Kukuczka, his mountain stories, reflections and on occasion even his desires.

“Na Szczytach Świata” ("At the top of the world") Jerzy Kukuczka and Tomasz Malanowski, the book (PL)


“Na szczytach świata” is a record of high-altitude memories of Jerzy Kukuczka, the best Polish climber of XX century. A long interview conducted and compiled by Tomasz Malanowski, a frank and open discussion of many mountain topics - the difficult beginning being the roots of his later Himalayan successes, struggling with yourself, the routes established on the world’s fourteen highest summits, climbing partners, death and friendship and the choice whether to help and put yourself at risk or save your own life, complicated preparations for expeditions which often started with paint works on factory chimneys as well as many other issues that were close to Jerzy’s heart. This is a simple and honest dialogue, far from the mountain martyrdom.
