My Country So Beautiful

My Country So Beautiful

dir.: Grzegorz Paprzycki

Grzegorz Paprzycki documents the spread of far-right attitudes in Poland and the reactions of those who fervently oppose them. 

He shows us a place where social polarization takes the form of an open conflict. But his film is about more than just demonstrations and riots. He also shows us the educational efforts undertaken by defenders of constitutional democracy and their challenging attempts at dialogue; although this time of an acute crisis in the rule of law does not seem conducive to such efforts, they are needed today more than ever.
