An American in communist Poland by Morawski, Piotr & Kaczynski, Ryszard

The visit of Robert Kennedy to communist Poland in 1964 was a chance for the secret police to see the American capitalist enemy with their own eyes. As Robert Kennedy visits the streets of Warshaw, goes to mass at the Jasna Gora and attends to a Polish wedding, the secret police is always nearby, documenting every single step. The footage reveals a disturbing fact of the activities in the Polish communist era. Citizens who got a bit too close to the American visitor were monitored and often got in serious trouble.
