Godspeed, Los Polacos!
Film Synopsis: During the Cold War, Poland’s youth looked for any way to break away from the monotony of life under Communist rule. In the City of Krakow, a group of university students formed a kayaking club as a tool to explore their local rivers and avoid participation in Communist parades and rallies.
Godspeed, Los Polacos! follows an epic two-year journey that culminates in a record-breaking first descent of the world’s deepest canyon, and finds the kayakers in Soviet cross-hairs after they leverage their newfound fame to fight for democracy in their homeland.
You can find more information about the FREE film screening and movie trailer at: https://utahfilmcenter.org/event/godspeed-los-polacos/
– Doors open at 8 pm
