Documentaries competition selection

It is a documentary on one of the most invincible commanders of the Polish independence underground, a “Silent Unseen” - Major Hieronim Dekutowski. It is a record of memories of his subordinates, colleagues, friends and family members. From their stories emerges a picture of a man demanding and stubborn, yet sensitive and longing for a normal life. The stories told by former Dekutowski’s soldiers are illustrated with numerous photographs, documents and animations of the unit’s most important actions. Major Dekutowski like other cursed soldiers was sentenced by communists to eternal oblivion. He returned as a hero.
