Far From Poland (1984) Learning Beyond the Classics
Learning Beyond the Classics Documentary: Fact or Fiction?
Directed by Jill Godmilow
With Ruth Maleczech, Mark Margolis, John Perkins
Not Rated, 110 minutes, DVD

Filmmaker and author Jill Godmilow planned to travel to Poland to shoot a film about the Solidarity Movement in Poland. When denied a visa, she needed to find a workaround to tell the compelling, useful story of how workers banded together to declare and enforce their rights.

In lieu of traveling to Poland, Godmilow instead made a feature-length apology for not making her original film. The result is a deft dismemberment of the myth of documentary truth.

Free for ND, SMC, HC, and IUSB students.

Sponsored by the Meg and John P. Brogan Endowment for Documentary Film.
