To see independence

COMPETITION SCREENING 11: Poland My Country

To see independence - dir. Piotr Jasiński, Poland 2020, 10’

A blind man – Wojtek – for the first time in his life, participates in the nationalist march celebrating Independence Day, in Poland. On his journey, he meets various participants of the march. He wants to experience it firsthand, and get a sense of what independence feels like. Wojtek comes to his own conclusions, and - despite his total loss of vision - sees things others often fail to notice. In the last few years, Independence Day - instead of uniting - divides Polish society. If you want to walk through the streets and celebrate the 11th of November, you need to make a choice: which march will you participate in?
