A brilliant film. Denied a visa to shoot in Poland, director Jill Godmilow constructs a film over the bare bones of documentary footage while in New York, resulting in a deft dismemberment of the myth of "documentary truth." The film portrays the birth of the Solidarity movement at the Gdansk shipyards through moving personal testimony and a chilling look at the psychology of a censor. "...like the best of Godard, it is film criticism and social criticism at the same time" (In These Times).
