Erecting a Monument

Poland, (MIFF 1973)

Director: Jerzy Jaraczewski

For three years, Jan Stach, farmer from the village of Znamuowice built a stone bridge over a 25 metre long gorge with his own hands.

It was his only way of establishing communication with the world after the village was cut off when an artificial lake flooded the only road out.
