"GODSPEED, LOS POLACOS!" The Lost Story Of The World’s Greatest Roadtrip


Join us for a Q&A with Trenton filmmakers Sonia Szczesna and Adam Nawrot, along with Lambertville local Jan Kubik, an expert on Poland's solidarity movement, who was interviewed for the film. Jan is a Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University.

"Godspeed, Los Polacos!" tells the story of five kayakers on the edge of adulthood who skillfully pull the strings of the Soviet system, and find themselves on an 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. The film will be subtitled in Polish. Rated NR, 1h28m.
