Walking With The News (2006)


A town of Świdnik, Niepodległości Street. This is where, after the martial law had been imposed, the town inhabitants would go out for a walk every day at 7:30 p.m., i.e. the time of the news broadcast, to protest against the television propaganda.


This moving, joint happening was a mass, spontaneous expression of civic disobedience against the propaganda of Wojciech Jaruzelski regime.

Filmography - 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.
