Still waiting for the DVD version to screen this with Harriet. She had an important
meeting at her company, so could not attend the BAM screening.
Walesa BAM

Just love those BAMcinématek curators.

The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way
I see it, is service to a fellow human being. ---Lech Walesa
Walesa BAM

I can't help but reflect this morning that Zbigniew Rybczynski is a man of his word.
In this clip of the 1983 Oscar Ceremony, between time codes 3':17" and 4':07", Zbig
promises he will be back in the future with a film on Lech Walesa and Solidarity.
I suppose the screening of Walesa: Man of Hope @ The BAMcinématek was the
realization of that goal? I went to BAM yesterday primarily for my photo shoot, and
saw that only somewhere around 30 or so people bought tickets for Andrej Wajda's
film. That's show business for you?
