Sparks of Hope, a review of feature films and documentaries about or related to Poland, will take place in London until mid-July. It is the third part of a project entitled Polish Paths to Freedom which aims to give the British public an opportunity to learn about the 20th-century history of Poland. The previous parts, First to Fight (autumn of 2007) and Behind the Iron Curtain (spring of 2008) dealt with Polish history from World War II to 1970. Sparks of Hope is the story of Poland's road to freedom in the 1980s, leading to the collapse of communism in 1989.

Sparks of Hope features 20 movies made over the past 30 years, including Man of Marble and Man of Iron by Andrzej Wajda, documentaries and docufiction by Krzysztof Kie¶lowski, the comedy Calls Controlled by Sylwester Chęciński and the latest production by Ewa Staniszkis and Anna Ferens, Three Buddies, which has won many awards. The only foreign film shown during Sparks of Hope will be Die Heldin von Danzig (Strike) by Volker Schlöndorff about strikes in the Gdańsk Shipyard.

The Sparks of Hope review has been organized by the Museum of the History of Poland in Warsaw and the Imperial War Museum in London, with support from Filmoteka Narodowa, the National Culture Center and the Polish Film Institute.
