His international career started at 1956 with Canal, which is a part of the trilogy of war films, together with A Generation (1954) and Ashes and Diamond (1958). Wajda initialized the Polish Film School - informal group of polish film directors, who broke the aesthetics of soc-realism. They were under a heavy influence of Italian neorealists, trying to analyse the effects of World War II.

He is also a co-creator of “Moral Unrest” movement, a trend in polish cinematography that lasted from 1976 till 1981. The representatives of this movement wanted their works to confront socio-political issues and to obtain creative freedom, which was banned by the communist government.

He made his debut in theatre in 1959 with Hatful of Rain by Michael V. Gazzo at the stage of Witold Gombrowicz Municipal Theatre in Gdynia. Since 1963 Andrzej Wajda was associated with The National Stary Theatre in Krakow. There he realized such performances as The Wedding, Biesy, November Night, Dybuk, Mishima and Macbeth.

In 1994 Andrzej Wajda has founded The Japanese Center of Art and Technology "Manggha" in Krakow.
