Opening Film: Below the Surface
directed by: Jacek Bławut
1940. At the time when on the beaches of Dunkirk a rushed evacuation of allied soldiers is taking place, the Polish submarine ORP Orzeł sets out on its perilous mission across the North Sea. On the way it encounters threats like naval mines, airstrikes and enemy ships. The crew has to withstand the growing physical and mental exhaustion. However, the true enemy remains unseen inside the claustrophobic insides of the boat.
