Promised Land

The Promised Land, an Oscar nominee considered by many to be Andrzej Wajda’s best work is an eventful story of three friends from Łódź: a Pole, a Jew and a German, who decided to create their own promised land. Tourists who visit Laos think of it as a gateway to paradise and absorb its unparalleled beauty but in general, their perspective is rather superficial. Newcomers to the polar region of Norway believe that this harsh but enchanting place will become their home despite cultural differences and different traditions. The pandemic forced a couple from Berlin to escape the urban bustle and take up farming in remote Mallorca. Is it a utopia? Yes, to some extent, because each of these stories raises concern about climate change.
