Generation '89 by Zmarz-Koczanowicz, Maria
The documentary Generation â€™89 portrays the so-called Generation of the Great Change in Poland. They are the members of the first generation who lived their own adulthood in the Third Republic. Young people, currently in their thirties, most of them were sitting at school in 1989. They were born in around 1968. The system change reached them during their university studies, which allowed them to decide about their own future freely and independently. They faced questions like shall they go on with their studies? Shall they create independent media or civil organisations? Shall they launch private businesses, new braches such as advertising or promotion? Active participation in politics? Or rather decommunizing the secret services? The documentary allows an inspection into the individuals of the Generation â€™89, who were mature adults when entering the Third Republic. Generation â€™89 shows their heroesâ€™ success and failures, worries and fears, as well as, presents the past two decades of the Polish freedom.
