Les États généraux du film documentaire 2017 Doc history: Poland Inondation

Illustration
Inondation ( Powódź )
Jerzy Bossak, Wacław Kaźmierczak
1947 - Pologne - Noir & Blanc - 14'

In the spring of 1947, Bossak sent teams of operators to the Vistula floodplain areas: the material that made up the film was presented in weekly editions of the Polish Film Chronicle. Without any commentary, the skilful editing makes the film a universal narrative about the power of hope and solidarity.
