Warsaw Upraising / Powstanie Warszawskie

“Warsaw Uprising” is the documentary film made entirely from documentary materials. It tells the story of the Warsaw Uprising of 1944 through the eyes of US airman, escaper from the Nazi camp and two young reporters, witnesses to insurgent fighting. It uses authentic newsreels filmed in August of 1944. With its cutting edge colorization and audio reconstruction as well as having ensured the cooperation of the best artists, the “Warsaw Uprising” has no comparable projects in the World. Six hours of original newsreel footage from the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, six months of work, a team of militarists, clothing and architecture consultants, urban planners, Warsaw experts and historians, 1000 of colour editing hours, 1200 shots, 1440 hours of colorizing and reconstruction, 112.000 selected frames, 648.000 minutes of frame by frame film reconstruction, 22.971.520 megabytes of data – these are only some numbers which help appreciate the enormous effort and means put into the project. The result is an 87-minute completely restored colored, extremely touching film, which shows the Warsaw Uprising with unparalleled realism. / 87 min / English Subtitles
