documentary / Poland / 2014 / 113’

On an August Saturday night in 1980 the workers finished the strike and were to leave the Gdansk Shipyard, satisfied with the pay rise.  It was then, when they closed the gates, thereby launching a solidarity strike. The full-length documentary tells the story of a dozen brave Polish women whose wisdom, determination and commitment to the’80s opposition  significantly influenced the political realities in Poland.

A meeting with Marta Dzido is held after the screening.
