„POLACY W WIKTORII”

Ten dokumentalny film próbuje odpowiedzieć na pytanie, co Polacy wnieśli w powstanie i rozwój Wiktorii. Ukazuje genezę polskiej emigracji, przedstawia jej duchowość i dorobek, kulturę i obyczaje, osiągnięcia i struktury, mówi o polskim szkolnictwie emigracyjnym i o sporcie, o polskich domach i kościołach, o dzieciach, młodzieży i seniorach układając się przy tym w niezwykle barwną mozaikę zdarzeń, twarzy i przeróżnych form życia Wiktoriańskiej Polonii.

This responsibility carries the name of Solidarity (…)
