      THE FILM "CITIZENS" AT GEORGETOWN U.
      -- NOV. 20, 7 P.M.


      As part of a series of commemorative events
      marking the 20th anniversary of the
      imposition of martial law in Poland,

      you are cordially invited by

      the Friends of Solidarity

      in association with

      the Embassy of the Republic of Poland

      to a screening of

      the acclaimed one-hour documentary film

      CITIZENS
      AN AMERICAN FILM PORTRAIT OF
      POLISH SOLIDARITY 1980-1981

      by Richard W. Adams

      "A vivid, evocative, powerful documentary"
      - William Styron

      DATE & TIME

      Tuesday, November 20
      7 p.m.


      PLACE

      Intercultural Center Auditorium
      Georgetown University
      Entrance from Main Gate
      at 37th and O Streets


      An optional $5 donation is suggested.


      When New York filmmaker Richard Adams was prevented by the December
      1981 crackdown on Solidarity from filming in Poland, he took
      advantage of the fact that many visitors from Poland were also
      stranded in the U.S., including many of the workers, artists, and
      intellectuals from Solidarity who had joined together to create a
      thriving civil society within a totalitarian state. The result was
      one of the only American documentaries to capture human dimensions
      of Poland's first "Solidarity period" that had been obscured by Cold-
      War rhetoric - and that are a distant memory for most Poles today -
      but that still have enduring relevance for any society, including
      our own.

      The Independent Self-Governing Trade Union Solidarity was unique in
      history: first, because it was rooted in a workers' movement which
      had learned from hard experience that to protect their own interests
      they had to fight for the interests of society as a whole; and
      conversely, because it won the trust and support of virtually all
      segments of society, by providing under Polish conditions at the time
      the only available channel for local grass-roots initiatives, open
      debate, and democratic action. And they did this with an enthusiasm,
      spirit of cooperation, and sense of responsibility toward the nation
      as a whole that constituted a real revolution of the spirit, and
      ultimately changed the world.

      CITIZENS premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in 1986 and was aired
      subsequently on PBS stations, at film festivals, and on college
      campuses throughout the country. In 1991, on the 10th anniversary of
      martial law, Polish television aired the film nationally on prime
      time. Since its release CITIZENS has served as a rich catalyst for
      the discussion of important lessons drawn from the unique legacy of
      the Solidarity movement of 1980-81. Among the many key issues and
      topics illuminated by the Solidarity experience are social movements,
      civil society, censorship, conflict resolution, and questions of
      democracy, addressed not only to the broader public but also to
      policy makers and scholars of political science, sociology, history,
      journalism, and East European area studies.

      CITIZENS was produced under the sponsorship of the New York
      Foundation for the Arts, and was made possible in part by grants from
      the Wisconsin Humanities Committee and the Massachusetts Foundation
      for Humanities and Public Policy, which are programs of the National
      Endowment for the Humanities. Additional support included a grant
      from the New York State Council on the Arts and private American
      foundations.

      Richard Adams was a Fulbright Scholar at Warsaw's Documentary Film
      Studio in 1965. His credits include the feature-length documentaries,
      ASYLUM and MEN OF BRONZE, and the PBS series, I REMEMBER HARLEM. His
      latest film, A DAY AT E.I.S., a video portrait of a unique
      homelessness prevention center in New York City, was warmly received
      at the 2001 New York International Independent Film & Video
      Festival..
