Decembers – Narrating History
(POL/DNK 2012, HD, 14 Min. 35 Sek., enOF)
Two important uprisings took place in Gdansk in December, one in 1970, the other in 1981. Both incidents are documented in thousands of photos. The first was brutally crushed by the Polish People\’s Army and the latter started a period of martial law. Decembers – Narrating History illuminates the discarded stories of everyday life and emphasizes their role in the fabric of history.
