Silesian Chain of Solidarity

Taking inspiration from a Baltic chain of freedom, that connected citizens of Baltic countries in 1989, “Silesian Chain of Solidarity” corresponds with such a groundbreaking event in order to amplify troubles tossing the industrial heart of Poland. As a symbol of chain, seems to be universal and timeless, this short action is set in indigent and engulfed in autonomy movements, Polish Silesia. Coal-mining area, that has been exploiting for long centuries, and which despite apparent neglect and oblivion, still remains a main pillar of domestic economy. This artistic movie presents symbolic chain of connections, which exist between protagonists coming from the same region. People, who suffer lack of perspectives and thus spent most of the time in inconclusive way. We follow together with them successive stages of unhealthy web, involving the illegal distribution of coal, which literally destroys local community.
