The Land of Free

Short doc- a prologue to a full time documentary. A story of human values, lonesome heritage and lovely people from Texas. People whose ancestors came to the Land of Free in mid 1900s. What do they feel about their Polish legacy? What does their everyday life look like? What are their sorrows, doubts and joys?

This short was made entirely on Canon 7D with just two lenses (70-200mmm and a 24-70mm). It took no longer than 5 hours on both locations - Bremond and Chappell Hill.
