Product Details

The emotional account of a simple worker who was the cause of the strike on the Gdansk shipyard in August 1980, which led to the creation of the first free unions and ultimately the downfall of the soviet system. The nearly illiterate orphan Agnieszka, communist activist and fervent catholic, is a bundle of a woman who fought with wit and cunning for justice at her workplace, not knowing that she would end up changing world history. Inspired by historical events and a true character, the film tells her tale like a ballad, showing that it may be neither ‘Great Men’, like Mao, Churchill or Napoleon, nor the struggle of classes that makes History, but that like in the story of human evolution a small mutation can make big changes. Directed by Volker Schlöndorff (The Tin Drum).
