The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a Polish film, The Promised Land (Ziemia Obiecana), on 23rd November, at the Sarathi Studios in Ameerpet. The film is directed by Andrzej Wajda, and has Daniel Olbrychski, Andrzej Seweryn, Wojciech Pszoniak and Kalina Jedrusik playing the central characters.

The Promised Land is a 1975 Polish film, based on a novel by Wladyslaw Reymont. Set in the industrial city of Lódz, The Promised Land tells the story of a Pole, a German and a Jew struggling to build a factory in the raw world of 19th century capitalism. Wajda presents a shocking image of the city, with its dirty and dangerous factories and ostentatiously opulent residences devoid of taste and culture.

Karol Borowiecki, a Polish nobleman, is the managing engineer at the Bucholz textile factory. He plans to set up his own factory with the help of his friends Max Baum, a German and heir to an old handloom factory, and Moritz Welt, an independent Jewish businessman. Borowiecki's affair with Lucy Zucker, wife of another textile magnate, gives him advance notice of a change in cotton tariffs, and helps Welt to make a killing on the Hamburg futures market. But more money has to be found, so all three characters cast aside their pride to raise the necessary capital.

On the day of the factory opening, Borowiecki has to deny his affair with Zucker's wife to a jealous husband. But while Borowiecki accompanies Lucy on her exile to Berlin, Zucker apparently takes his revenge by burning down the three partners' uninsured factory.
