The article presents information on several motion pictures of the U.S. and Poland. Contemporary Polish film is rather unknown in the U.S. Annually 25 full-length feature films are produced but few unfortunately, will be shown here under the existing arrangements. The Polish Embassy and Film Polski had made arrangements for Frank to view over. 60 films during a three-week visit to Poland in 1979. Re selected ten films for showing in the United States. The Polish film festival-- actually it was a tour--was organized by The American University with the cooperation of the National Film Theater of Canada and the Embassy of Poland, More than 10,000 people attended festival showings in over ten American and five Canadian cities. "The Land of Promise," is a film which focuses on the lives of three young men in Lodz during the 1890s. The village of Lodz had rapidly become the center of the Polish textile industry and peasants from overcrowded villages were flocking to the city.
