Hear My Cry

Poland, 1991 (MIFF 1992, Documentary)

Director: Maciej Drygas

On Polish national day, 1968, Ryszard Siwiec self immolated in front of thousands of people in a Warsaw stadium. He was protesting the invasion of Czechoslovakia by Warsaw Pact forces. The world remained silent; his name or deed received no front-page coverage. This moving documentary is the story of humankind's eternal need to escape from the constraints of totalitarianism. Winner of the European Film Award for Documentary of the Year.
