Reymont's novels exist in contemporary Polish culture through cinema. Andrzej Wajda's Land of Promise entered the canon of Polish cinematography and, to a large extent, shaped the perceptions of Polish history. It was similar to the adaptation of The Peasants. Today, Reymont's texts and their adaptations become interesting again in the context of the discussion about how national history relates to the history of social groups and the conflicts between them.
