Godspeed Los Polacos! 28.10.2021 in Multikino cinema network

It is the 40th anniversary of one of the largest Polish travel expeditions. The award-winning documentary film tells the story of the Canoandes79 expedition, during which a team of students from Poland became the first in the world to cross in canoes what is considered the deepest canyon on Earth – the Colca Canyon in Peru.

The expedition included Andrzej Piętowski (leader), Jacek Bogucki, Zbigniew Bzdak, Piotr Chmieliński, Stefan Danielski, Krzysztof Kraśniewski and Jerzy Majcherczyk.

„Godspeed, los Polacos!” shows not only the journey on the rivers of the Americas, but also the political background of the expedition and the subsequent fate of the canoeists, who actively manifested their opposition to the actions of the Polish authorities of the time.
