One of the most important films ever made in Poland and a compelling attack on government corruption. Agnieszka is a young woman in Krakow who is making her thesis film, which looks behind the scenes at the life of a 1950s bricklayer, Birkut, who was briefly elevated to the status of a communist hero. Having got hold of censored footage and interviews with the man's friends and ex-wife, a portrait of Birkut emerges as a man who believed in socialist ideals, the workers' revolution, and in building housing for all. Agnieszka's supervisor, however, feels the film's content is getting too close to a political nerve and kills the project. Agnieszka however pushes forward to complete the film

Mike Lennon, a retired New York City fireman, sat down with over a dozen firefighters, a dispatcher, a few Manhattan residents, and a handful of 9/11 widows.

With a clarity rarely seen, this film delivers an insight into how singular a group of people firefighters are, and how incredibly they responded that day to a situation none of them could have anticipated
