ACME Screening Room Presents- Godspeed Los Polacos: The Lost Story of the World’s Greatest Road trip on Saturday, March 25, 2023


(LAMBERTVILLE, NJ) – Join the Acme Screening Room Sat March 25 at 4pm for the documentary “Godspeed Los Polacos: The Lost Story of the World’s Greatest Roadtrip”, including a post screening QnA with Trenton filmmakers Sonia Szczesna and Adam Nawrot, along with Lambertville local Jan Kubik, an expert on Poland’s solidarity movement.


The documentary tells the story of five kayakers on the edge of adulthood who skillfully pull the strings of the Soviet system and find themselves on an expedition in the Americas with a six-wheeled military truck, homemade equipment, and little to no whitewater skills. The story follows their epic two-year journey that culminates in the record-breaking first descent of the world’s deepest canyon and finds the kayakers in Soviet cross-hairs after they leverage their newfound fame to fight for democracy in the Eastern Bloc. The film will be subtitled in Polish.


Filmmakers Sonia Szczesna and Adam Nawrot, are the owners of Sourland Studios, focusing on documentary and commercial content. Jan Kubik is also a Professor of Political Science at Rutgers University.
