Documentary screening: Polish for Beginners with introduction director Anna Witte

Stella Maris is home to 400 migrant workers from Poland and offers comfortable, renovated rooms, Polish television, entertainment, and a gym, so the residents do not want for anything. But do they find what they are looking for? Life in Stella Maris can never truly be called home, and is overshadowed by the hopes of another life, raising the question: What are your dreams worth? If we think only of our future, does the presence lose its meaning?
