A voice from Gdańsk

by Alejandra Espasande Bouza

I employed archival footage to document the historic transition of communist Poland into democracy, as seen from the perspective of the Gdańsk strikes, and the Solidarity movement of Lech Wałęsa. It is dedicated to the memory of Father Jerzy Popiełuszko. Archival footage courtesy of the Polish and the French National Audiovisual Institutes (NInA & INA), Video Studio Gdańsk. Produced for Dock's Docs Remix. A project of the European Culture Congress Cultural Programme Polish EU Presidency 2011.
