Jarocin. Rock for Freedom

Directed by Marek Gajczak, Leszek Gnoiński

In a small town, which no one in Poland heard of, a unique rock festival is born. This takes place in times of strong socialism in the 1980s. Tens of thousands of people arrive at Jarocin which becomes an island of freedom and rebellion. Jarocin Festival was the most important music event of the 1980s in Poland. A unique place, identified with freedom, escape from everyday life, from dullness and hopelessness. The place of rebelling and fighting for young people’s identity. One of the most important culture-creating places on the map of Poland. Perceived as the nest of evil and debauchery by the older generation. However, from a time perspective it can be seen as the only “normal” place in the Polish sea of abnormality and socialist greyness.
