Logo - Republika- Narodziny Legendy


It is the second half of 1970s. In Toruń, there exists an active artistic community that centres around the OD NOWA Student Creative Work Club. It is attended by young people, who go there to practice various forms of activity: they establish theatres, music bands, and there are also visual artists and performers. The creative melting pot becomes the cradle of Res Publica, a band that will later transform into Republika. That is the starting point for a film that discusses the very first period in the existence of the band, which ended in its dissolution back in 1986.

The film was created out of interesting and largely unknown film and concert footage, excerpts of songs, previously unreleased pictures, as well as various interpretations and reviews of selected songs composed by the band. The story behind the birth of the phenomenon called Republika takes into consideration the historic context of the time and place where that creative unrest happened - the student community in Toruń.
