A collection of metal film cans is discovered among Stanisław Wisłocki’s belongings a few years after his death, and it creates a sensation. Wisłocki was a pianist, composer, and conductor of the Polish National Philharmonic. Forgotten for 48 years, the film cans contain 16mm footage of the Philharmonic’s 1961 tour of the USA and Canada that Wisłocki shot. 1961 was a significant time, the year that the Berlin Wall was built. “The American Tour” creates a universal story of the sociological, moral, and political picture of this unique time.
