POLAND | 179 minutes | 1975

A flagship film in the legacy of the unforgettable Polish filmmaker, The Promised Land traces the dawn of industrial capitalism in Eastern Europe and its accompanying erosion of values like solidarity and respect for nature and lessons learned. A masterpiece of baroque realism, the film paints a world where the greed of some trumps the fundamental rights of others.

Presented by the FONDATION LILIANA KOMOROWSKA POUR LES ARTS and the EMBASSY OF THE REPUBLIC OF POLAND IN OTTAWA
