WAR OF THE WORLDS - WOJNA SWIATOW
DOCUMENATARY

2020, 81 min, Poland
Polish with English subtitles
dir. Miroslaw Bork, Krzysztof Talczewski

This documentary film is based on reconstructed and colorized archival materials from the Polish-Soviet war of 1920, which ended with one of the greatest military successes of the Polish nation. The "War of the Worlds" also uses radio recordings, reports of participants and witnesses of events, as well as archival material testimonies that have survived to our times: photos, military orders, and records of secret reports. TVP did digital reconstructions of hundred-year-old, unpublished, archival films, including from Russia, France, Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and the USA. In August 1920, one of the most important battles for Poland was fought - the Battle of Warsaw, known as the Miracle on the Vistula. The Polish-Soviet war, however, started much earlier, ended much later and was not limited to the defense of Warsaw; on the contrary, it took place in the area from Smolesk to Warsaw, from Pock to Lviv. It was not a miracle, but the effect of the perfect synchronization of command, intelligence, and bravery of soldiers.

Film dokumentalny oparty na zrekonstruowanych filmach archiwalnych z wojny polsko - sowieckiej 1920 roku, zakonczonej jednym z najwiekszych sukcesow militarnych narodu polskiego. W "Wojnie swiatow" wykorzystano rowniez nagrania radiowe, relacje uczestnikow i swiadkow wydarzen, a takze archiwalne swiadectwa materialne, ktore przetrwaly do naszych czasow: fotografie, rozkazy oraz zapisy tajnych raportow. Telewizja Polska przeprowadzila cyfrowa rekonstrukcje stuletnich, niepublikowanych dotad archiwalnych filmow, m. in. z Rosji, Francji, Wielkiej Brytanii, Czech Wegier i USA. W sierpniu 1920 roku stoczona zostala jedna z wazniejszych dla Polski bitew- Bitwa Warszawska, zwana Cudem nad Wisla. Wojna polsko - sowiecka zaczela sie jednak duzo wczesniej, skonczyla duzo pozniej i nie ograniczala sie do obrony Warszawy; przeciwnie toczyla sie na terenie od Smolenska do Warszawy, od Plocka do Lwowa. Nie byla cudem, tylko efektem znakomitej synchronizacji dowodzenia, wywiadu i walecznosci zolnierzy.
