Freedom or not?

The ”Freedom Container” project ended with a debate entitled “Freedom or Not?” which was held on the 27th of October at the Państwo Miasto Cafe in Warsaw. The debate concerned civil involvement in contemporary Poland. The participants included: Jadwiga Czartoryska (Orange Foundation), prof. Ireneusz Krzemiński (University of Warsaw), Dorota Warakomska (Women’s Congress), Kuba Wygnański (Stocznia Foundation) and Piotr Wójcik (author of “Polish Freedoms”.)

Polish freedoms

Piotr Wójcik's and Justyna Pobiedzinska's documentary project approaches the subject of the 1989 democratic transformation. The goal of the project is defining "freedom" - the fundamental postulate of the democratic opposition and the "Solidarność" movement and in a wider historical perspective – the idea that led several generations of Poles fighting for polish independence.
