The Good Change: Poles Apart

77' 2018 Poland director: Konrad Szołajski cinematography: Michał Ślusarczyk editing: Paweł Kowalik, Małgorzata Prociak production: ZK Studio, TS Productions

Marta and Tita in politically polarized Poland.

Marta manages the Gazeta Polska club in Gliwice and acts in the Strzelcy Rzeczpospolitej (Shooters of the Republic) association . Tita is an activist for the Committee for the Defence of Democracy. Both are patriots, but their patriotism doesn't unite them. Just the opposite, in fact: their social activities put them on two different sides of a political barricade. Konrad Szołajski doesn't judge his protagonists; rather, he penetrates their worlds and tries to understand them. He films Marta and Tita at home and when they take part in the activities of their associations, even at closed activist meetings. He creates a poignant documentary image of a deeply divided Poland during the era of "A Change for the Better."
