Event Details

Walesa

How was it possible for a single person to change the world so dramatically? It is as much a political as a psychological question. Legendary director Andrzej Wajda, intruding into a private, even intimate sphere of Lech Wałęsa – the Polish “Solidarity“ Trade Union’s leader - attempts to capture this incredible metamorphosis from a simple worker into a charismatic leader. Wałęsa’s controversial persona, fostering heated discussions to this very day, helped millions of people release suppressed dreams of freedom, setting the stage for the political transformation in Poland beyond anyone’s imagination at the time.

 

Presented by Akson Studio and Polish Film Institute, Walesa. Man of Hope has been selected as the Polish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at at the 86th Academy Awards.
