“American In Poland” Is A Winner Of NURT 2009 Festival


„American in Poland” directed by Piotr Morawski and Ryszard Kaczyński, produced by Studio Filmowe Kalejdoskop was awarded “The Event of NURT 2009” Prize. XV Polish Independent Review of Documentaries NURT 2009 took place – as always – in Kielce.


It is a story of Robert Kennedy’s visit to Poland in 1964. The television premiere took place on the 4th of November, 2009, the Channel 1 of the Polish national TV.
In 1964, Kennedy spent 5 days in Poland. He visited Warsaw, Cracow and Jasna Góra (the holy place for Catholics in Poland), where he met the Polish Primate, Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński.
In a Warsaw restaurant he participated in, and enjoyed the wedding party of a Polish couple. The memories of the bride and the bridegroom were also used in the film. The story of that unusual trip of the American Attorney General to Poland “insightfully presents – in the opinion of reviewers – “an impact of two worlds: grayish and miserable Poland under the communist rules of Gomułka with a breath of freshness in that musty Polish People’s Republic (PRL)”.
The authors of the awarded film were also honored by the Kielce Broadcasting Prize: “For this what is not seen, namely for the artistic perfection of sound in a documentary”.



News - new


Beginning of 1945, Upper Silesia, Poland. The last days of WW2. At the just liberated areas, the Communist Security Service eliminates its enemies under the pretext of punishing “national traitors.” It organizes a labour camp for Germans, Silesians and Poles, at the site of a former Nazi concentration camp, which is named “Zgoda” / “Reconciliation”. Franek, who is in love with a Polish prisoner Anna, joins the camp crew to rescue her. He doesn't know that one of the inmates is Erwin, his German friend, who, like himself, has also loved Anna for a long time. Franek joins Communists in the illusory hope of outsmarting the system.
