Roman Polanski directed his first film in 1955, a short film named Rower. Since then, he’s gone on to write, direct and even act in a number of movies that you’ve certainly seen, or at least heard of.

During his childhood, Roman survived the Holocaust by hiding in a Polish farmer’s barn for the duration of the war. As with anyone who lived through such horrific events, his life would never be the same.
