I LOVE POLAND
POLISH TITLE: KOCHAM POLSKĘ
In their programme under ‘Who we are’ the members of the All-Polish Youth wrote: ‘We are not from nowhere. We all are the members of a bigger community. The nation. We are Poles, for some it is a cliché and for us it is the fundamental truth. The basis of our identity.’ The All-Polish Youth fights with feminists, gays and lesbians. Their intolerance goes side by side with proudly announced attachment to Catholicism. The authors of the film are trying to answer the questions: Who are these people? Where is the source of their fundamentalism?
