Pommerland (2005) Volker Koepp, Grzegorz Bartosiewicz, Jim Bartosiewicz, Malgorzata Bartosiewicz


Pomerania (Polish: Pomorze, which means ‘Land By the Sea’) stretches along the southern coast of the Baltic sea on both sides of the Polish-German border. It is the Polish part that Volker Koepp visited in May 2004, only a few days after Poland had entered the European Union. With its villages, forests, and tree alleys that seem to lead into infinity, its extensive corn and potato fields, it is a region that has always been determined by agriculture. Concentrating on the district of Slupsk, Koepp and his long-term collaborator, the cameraman Thomas Plenert, show the beauty of its landscape but also its many problems. The political changes since the 1990s and particularly the collapses of state run agriculture have left many people without work. Up to 75% of the population in the villages is unemployed causing many young people to move away. But Koepp has also come across people like the young Polish couple Bastosiewicz who are full of enthusiasm in their efforts to revive the old farms with the newly available EU funds. They start to renovate the old farm house and even begin investigations into the history of the area. Arriving from the Uckermark, the 90-year-old Adolf-Heinrich von Arnim pays them a visit. He has spent his childhood and youth on the farms in the surroundings. Koepp’s film pays tribute to region that has always been a land of transit where new beginnings have always been the order of the day.
