Imagine my pleasure when I discovered the full version on Vimeo today. So, now it's here. The compelling animation traces Poland's history from feudal times to the present day. You will see the world wars, the partition of the country, Chopin, the rise and fall of Communism, Solidarnosc (solidarity) and much more. To capture the entire history of a nation in just eight minutes is an amazing achievement. If you are not Polish then a number of the dates may not mean a great deal to you. However, follow this link to Wikipedia's History of Poland page (which is excellent) and you will be able to find explanations behind each of the dates in the animation.
Plus, we are now using a new embed code for video which supports iPad, iPhone, Flash and beyond. So you can watch it on the bus too!
So, go make a drink, sit back and enjoy. This is quite simply one of the most astounding pieces of animation I have ever seen.
