Far From Poland
A film by Jill Godmilow
1984, 109 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99094
When denied visas to shoot in Poland, a filmmaker, steeped in the documentary traditions of the left, decides to construct her film in New York City. Over the barest bones of documentary footage she drapes dramatic reenactments of Solidarity texts, formal vignettes and swatches of soap opera to engage the audience in her personal definition of the Polish struggle. A deft dismemberment of documentary truth, from the director of WAITING FOR THE MOON. Made in collaboration with Susan Delson, Mark Magill and Andrzej Tymowski.

    "Plays at the boundaries between documentary and fiction, reflexiveness and representation, sex and politics, sophistication and naiveté, earnestness and irony."
