Meeting with Adam Michnik and Maria Zmarz-Koczanowicz
Adam Michnik is a legendary Polish dissident who has neither lost his non-conformist position nor stopped his active actions after the fall of the communist regime. Adam is the founder of "Gazeta Wyborcza", which remains one of the main Polish media for almost 30 years. He still “aims for the impossible”, goes against the stream and sticks to his ideals and values.
The film "Be realistic, aim for the impossible!", directed by Maria Zmarz-Koczanowicz, tells the story of Adam Michnik’s life. What is it about? Is it the story of an idealist making his way in difficult historical circumstances? Maybe, the story of a politician, whose actions change history? Or the story of the brave Gavroche of the Polish revolution?
This story has many aspects: sparring between generations, relationships with friends and colleagues, difficult decisions and conflicts, debates about goals and methods.
The film gives much food for thought about the essence of "resistance", its foundations, methods and boundaries. After the film, viewers will have a unique opportunity to discuss this “story” with its main character, Adam Michnik, as well as ask Maria Zmazh-Kochanovich questions about her great work.
