Article 18

Artykuł osiemnasty

Article 18 is a full-length documentary film, aiming to explain why Poland has failed to introduce same-sex marriage law. Despite 27 years of freedom and democracy gay and lesbian people in Poland are still struggling with discrimination, while politicians play their problems down. No possibility of formalizing these relationships or getting married creates barriers in everyday, common life but also symbolizes the reality of inequalities, a society which allegedly creates equal environment for all, but in fact treats some of its members as second class citizens, deprived of certain rights. The title of the film refers to the article 18 of the Polish Constitution, according to which marriage as institution deserves state protection as long as it is a relationship between a man and a woman.
