Decembers - Narrating History

Running time: 14'

The history of December 1970 and August 1980. Creating the Solidarity movement presented through the story of a hypothetical activist; rich in private and social emotions, emanating with the spirit of Polish opposition of the '70s and '80s. The offscreen narration accompanies the archival photographs. Basing on the recollections of many women, Maj Hasager created one cohesive narrative, whose key dramaturgic moments are: the cold asphalt before the shipyard gates, and a procession of men led by the story's heroine.
