The second showing will run 2-4 p.m. in room A1225 on campus. Guests to the 2 p.m. showing are encouraged to park in lot A and enter through door 16 or 17.

The film describes the arrival of Polish immigrants to Chicago, which became the largest center of Polish culture outside of Poland itself. Incorporating both historical and present-day footage, the documentary shows the neighborhoods where Poles congregated to work in Chicago’s burgeoning industries, and it depicts their life, which was built around work, faith and a love of their mother country, as Poland fought for independence in the twentieth century.
