“This biopic tribute to Lech Walesa, the Nobel peace prize-winning politician and human rights activist, is an enjoyable look at an unconventional hero.”– The Guardian. In Wałęsa: Man of Hope, Andrzej Wajda probes the private life of the Polish “Solidarity” Trade Union leader and wrests from its essence the incredible transformation of a shipyard worker into a charismatic leader.

Women’s Day is an enthralling story about the difficult choices and ethical dilemmas that can come along with a paycheck. Not only does it address female solidarity and issues of gender equality, but invests strong emphasis on workers’ rights in a post-Soviet Poland. Lead actress Katarzyna Kwiatkowska delivers a dazzling performance as a complicated heroine of the labor force. Based upon a real-life lawsuit against a major supermarket chain, Women’s Day is a true underdog story, a salute to those who voice their concerns in the menacing face of oppression.
