4th Partition- film screening and a discussion with film director Adrian Prawica

Movie Preview

Film is a unique story about Chicago’s Polish community at the end of the 20th century. It examines the economic and political reasons for the migration of over 4,000,000 Poles to the United States between 1870 and 1920. Starting with the first Polish settlers in the Jamestown colony in 1608, this documentary focuses on Polish immigrant workers in heavily industrialized Chicago neighborhoods, their community, as well as their political activism, which aided Poland in the fight for independence during WWI.
