Patriota


First played out on 6th June 2006, This one has four years later over 40,000 hits and rising, all because any theme involving Polish patriotism is going to get the hits, no doubt about it. It is of course flattening off a bit now, because the personas involved are maybe less central than they were, but it’s an election year and this may go up again.

Over half the voters on the ratings for this film didn’t like it. I don’t especially like it either, I just threw together some random online newspaper images together with audio of leading politician Jaroslaw Kaczynski’s dire rendition of the Polish National Anthem, and somehow I got something that people found very provocative, even though it doesn’t add up to a great meaning, one way or another. It was only an experiment, as was most of my stuff in the first year I was on YT.
