After claiming the first descent of the world’s deepest canyon, five university students from Krakow risk it all to fight for democracy in the Eastern Bloc.
During the Cold War, Poland’s youth looked for any way to break away
from the monotony of life under Communist rule. In the City of Krakow, a
group of university students formed a kayaking club as a tool to explore
their local rivers and avoid participation in Communist parades and
rallies. After experiencing the thrill of Poland’s one and only class III
rapid, club members Andrzej Pietowski, Piotr Chmielinski (who would go
on to be the first person to paddle the Amazon river source to sea), and
Jurek Majcherczyk set their sights on the impossible - leaving the Eastern
Bloc to paddle whitewater.
Godspeed, Los Polacos! tells the story of five university students on the
edge of adulthood who skillfully pull the strings of the Soviet system,
and find themselves on a kayaking expedition in the Americas with a six-wheeled
military truck, homemade equipment, and little to no whitewater
skills. The story follows their epic two-year journey that culminates in the
record-breaking first descent of the world’s deepest canyon, and finds the
kayakers in Soviet cross-hairs after they leverage their newfound fame to
fight for democracy in the Eastern Bloc.
