Robert Wieckiewicz, Walesa: Man of Hope



Poland’s leading actor Robert Wieckiewicz talks frankly about tackling a tricky role: Poland’s iconic, revered Nobel Peace Prize winner Lech Walesa, the founder and conscience of Poland's Solidarity movement.  Under the direction of Andrzej Wajda, Poland’s foremost filmmaker, Wieckiewicz memorably embodies the contradictions of a man of uncommon courage and faith. Man of Hope concludes the director’s acclaimed trilogy that began with 1977’s Man of Marble, continued with the 1981 Man of Iron and now ends as Poland in the 1970s fought and ultimately defeated the Soviet Communist regime and won its long-sought freedom. In English and Polish.
