The Good Change: Poles Apart (OmeU)
Documentary, Polen/Fr 2018, 77 min, written & directed by Konrad Szołajski

In recent years the political tension in Poland has been escalating
unprecedentedly. This film presents the dramatic developments through
the eyes of 2 women on opposite sides of the political barricade.
Marta and Tita are patriots. Both are proud of their country and its
history, and they want only the best for it. But their attitudes could
not be more different. While Marta wants a strong Poland, leads a
paramilitary unit, promotes Christian values and supports the ruling
conservative Law and Justice Party, Tita wants to be part of Europe,
hates weapons, and believes that the government program “The Good
Change” is an instrument to suppress liberal influences and will lead to
a creeping reduction in civil rights, an infringement of democratic
principles and constitutional changes. The director in no way judges his
protagonists and their actions, instead presenting an impartial
behind-the-scenes view of the camps of the feuding parties.

Three Days in Berlin (OmeU)
Documentary, D/Polen 2018, 13 min, directed by Kamil Bembnista, written
by Karolina Golimowska

Set in Poland and Germany the film shows two radically different
approaches to the legal situation regulating the right to abortion in
Poland. On one hand a catholic initiative that promotes pro-life
messages and organises public rosaries “for the restoration of the
morale of the Polish people”, on the other hand a group of activists
based in Berlin who help women to organise an abortion in Germany, where
it is legal. This cross-border picture tells a story of two worlds that
despite being geographically close to one another in a Europe of no
physical borders are yet completely incompatible.
