Important but Slow Documentary
28 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

Jill Godmilow is a premier American documentary filmmaker, known mostly for telling stories about how she is trying to tell a story. In other words, her films are quite reflexive and, in her opinion, more honest because of that. This film is a prime example. Unable to get to Poland to shoot the story of the Solidarity movement firsthand, she intercuts between archival footage, re-enacted, verbatim interviews based on transcripts, and her own direct addresses to the camera about what is happening in her own personal and professional life as she tries to make this film. Viewers with little interest in documentary film as a genre or in the Polish Solidarity movement of the 1980s might find little in this film to hold their attention, but viewers interested in either the genre or the subject should see it (if they can find it).
