De Poolse Droom

Credits for the documentary De Poolse Droom by Karin Kooijman.

This documentary is a portrait of three highly educated Polish women who came to the Netherlands, with the idea to shape their ambitions. Due to the circumstances in their families and countries Justyna, Paulina and Ilona want to start over in the Netherlands. Once here they end up doing monotonous jobs like many Polish immigrants. They are far from home, end up in invisible work and donít know the language. They feel displaced. The three women from Poland have one purpose: to be seen for who they are and not just for their hands. How do they express their aspirations? How do they find guidance in life? And what do they leave behind in Poland? A story about ambition, strength and willpower.
