Some questions about young people in Poland filmed nicely by veteran Polish cinematographer Jacek Petrycki.
In "Cwiczenia Warsztatowe",we see a documentary film crew filming views of Polish people on youngsters.A variety of answers are obtained as it is a question of honor of a communist society.There are some people who oppose all views about Polish youth.There are some people who present their frank views.We also get to see some people who refrain from speaking as they are afraid of expressing themselves in public.It appears from some scenes as if Polish people have some kind of fear which is preventing them from getting their voices heard.It is from some reactions that we can deduce that in the past there was some discipline in Polish schools.It is the older generation of Polish people that is extremely critical of young Poles.According to them Polish youth have a tendency to destroy everything.Marcel Lozinski films two views of the same reality.Is it a trick ? It might be a way to get closer to reality.It is shocking that no one knows a real answer to this question as the editing of the film was done neither with the knowledge of the participants nor without their approval.
