Aneta, this was unknown about the author and yes it is not right, as there are many other stories of equal value or better. But for the uneducated, this movie will bring to notice the suffering and unfair treatment of Sibyriaks.
the promoting clip of "Syberiada Polska" - first feature film made in Poland conc Sybiraks - is promising however there is a big rumour around it before the premiere in Poland. The problem is that the scenario was based on the book of Zbigniew Domino, Sybirak but in Stalinism times in Poland and later till 1974 after coming back to Poland through repatriation he was military prosecutor judging long or death sentences to Polish Home Army soldiers.
Everybody are upset that such book (because of the author) was taken to be the basis of the scenario while many other valuable memoirs written by Sybiraks in Poland could be chosen instead.
Me and my husband are invited on the official premiere of the film in Warsaw on coming Monday. Will let you know our views after it.
Will also find out when it will be presented abroad to Polonia and foreigners.
