"Land of Promise"
Based on the novel by Nobel Prize-winner Wladyslav Reymont, Andrzej Wajda's
epic film examines the relationships among three industrialists who own a
textile factory in Lodz at the turn of the century. The film is an epic
about complex class structures; each man represents a different ethnic
group: a Pole (Daniel Olbrychski), a German (Andrzej Seweryn) and a Jew
(Wojciech Pszoniak). The drama builds to a climax when the overworked,
underpaid workers threaten to revolt. With Anna Nehrebecka. Polish with
VHS Item#: S19397

This is a 1975 film from Poland. We own it but a patron decided to tape a
soap opera on it and now I'm having trouble locating another copy. I've
tried Facets, Movies Unlimited, and Sam's. If any one has a lead on this
film, I'd appreciate it.
