A jubilant backlash to the obscurantism inflicted by Communist diktat of the 1980s. A biopic tribute to the leader of the Gdansk shipyard workers’ uprising, violently suppressed by the Communist regime. The Polish director delivers a stirring, nuanced tale that interweaves historical fact with the private persona of the charismatic Walesa. A lesson in the determination of an emblematic figure fighting for justice, the feature film also benefits from its director’s masterful integration of authentic details.Presented by the FONDATION LILIANA KOMOROWSKA POUR LES ARTS and the EMBASSY OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND IN OTTAWA
