Movie synopsis: Lech Walesa used to work as an electrician in docks. He later became the leading personality of the Solidarity movement, which acted against the communist regime and contributed to its fall in 1989. Lech Walesa is the symbol of communism's fall and of freedom in Poland, as well as being the first president elected in democratic elections. The biographical film, Man of Hope, was made on the occasion of Walesa's 70th birthday and directed by an icon of Polish cinema, Andrzej Wajda. While narrated traditionally, the fascinating and compelling life story introduces Walesa as a politician, as a man of enviable courage, but also as a father. Robert Wieckiewicz, the distinctive Polish actor portrays Walesa. OPENING FILM OF THE FESTIVAL.
