“We did this for our country!” 1091 Pictures has unveiled an official trailer for a fascinating escape in the free documentary titled Good luck, Poles!, which is the perfect title to hopefully capture people’s attention. Five university students risk it all to fight for democracy in the Eastern bloc after claiming the first descent of the world’s deepest chasm. This originally premiered at the Banff Mountain Film Festival last year and it debuts on VOD in September. A group of college students from Poland on the brink of adulthood are on a kayak expedition in America with an old military truck, homemade equipment and few or no whitewater skills. The story follows their epic two-year journey, culminating in the record-breaking first descent of the world’s deepest ravine in Peru, and finding the kayakers in Soviet cross-hairs after exploiting their newfound fame to fight for democracy in the Eastern bloc. I’m ready for this! I love those kind of crazy cool stories from the past about some motivated people who go on adventures.

Here is the official trailer (+ poster) for Adam Nawrot’s doc Good luck, Poles!, from YouTube:

During the Cold War, the youth of Poland sought every way to break away from the monotony of life under communist rule. In the city of Krakow, a group of university students formed a kayak club as a tool to explore their local rivers and avoid participating in communist parades and rallies. After experiencing the excitement of Poland’s one and only Class III torrent, members Andrzej Pietowski, Piotr Chmielinski (who continued to be the first person to paddle the Amazon river source to the sea), and Jurek Majcherczyk set their sights on the impossible – leaving the Eastern bloc for to paddle whitewater. Good luck, Los Polacos! tells the story of five college-age college students who skillfully pull the strings of the Soviet system and find themselves on a kayak expedition in America with a six-wheeled military car, homemade equipment, and little or no whitewater skills. Good luck, Poles! is directed by adventure filmmakers Adam Nawrot, which debuted as a feature film after a short. This first premiered at the Banff Mountain Film Festival last year. 1091 Photos releases Good luck, Poles! directly to VOD on September 21, 2021.
