Venice Star

The Venice Film Festival was astonished and greeted “Wałęsa” with a standing ovation. We are, of course, talking about the new film by Andrzej Wajda titled, “Wałęsa, Man of Hope”. The film was shown at the Venice Film Festival with the director, main actors, and former president Lech Wałęsa and his wife Danuta in attendance. Before the film began, Andrzej Wajda received an award from Alberto Barbera, the Director of the Venice FIlm Festival. Barbera, who praised the director, called him a master of worldwide cinema. Lech Wałęsa, who was present at the première, was warmly welcomed by the Venetian audience. It was the Nobel Prize winner’s first such event. The actors who played the main characters, Robert Więckiewicz (Lech Wałęsa) and Agnieszka Grochowska (Danuta Wałęsa) were also present. The film was welcomed with enthusiasm and greeted with applause from the audience. Andrzej Wajda said, “I hope that ‘Wałęsa’ will spread out across the the world from Venice. Lech Wałęsa is the man who changed everything not only in Poland but also Europe. He is the hero of our times.”
