TAK POLSKA - A Llanelli Foyer Film
Following Llanelli Llety Foyer’s successful film last year on the history of Llanelli, the Young Person’s Committee recently screened their latest film ‘Tak Polska’ ('Yes Poland') at the Selwyn Samuel Centre.
Llety Llanelli Foyer’s Young Person’s Committee was set up in 2010, with the aim of supporting the creative interests of the project’s residents. It was this move that led to the formation of Foyer Films.
Following the arrival of a Polish resident at the scheme, the young people were keen to find to explore the culture and customs of the country as well as issues around immigration and youth unemployment.
The European Union’s Youth in Action Programme awarded a grant of €11,280 (equivalent to £9,500) to explore youth issues within the country. As well as a cultural exchange visit to Poland. This allowed the creation of the ‘Tak Polska' film, looking at Llanelli’s Polish community.
The premiere of the film was followed by a charity auction and the presentation of European Youth Pass certificates to the young participants.
