About the film
Mirosław Jasiński is a legend of the Polish-Czechoslovak Solidarity movement. His most recent film, “Central Europe goes to freedom”, shows the key political events in the early 1990s in Poland, Czechoslovakia and Hungary which led to the formation of the Visegrad Triangle, and later the expulsion of Soviet troops from the region.
The film shows how long-standing personal contacts and the cooperation of opposition movements resulted in a rare international cooperation. The film concentrates on the heroes of those days, who influenced the course of events and played an important role in the process of freeing Central Europe from the influences of the Soviet Union. “Central Europe goes to freedom” was co-produced by the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity and the “Remembrance and the Future” Centre.
