Santa Rosa: Odyssey in the Rhythm of Mariachi

The cover image, which is not taken from the Santa “Rosa: Odyssey in the Rhythm of Mariachi” video, is from the family album of Julian Plowy, a former Santa Rosa Polish refugee child.

“Santa Rosa” documentary reveals an unknown chapter in the history of World War II – the fate of Polish deportees into the Soviet Union who found unlikely refuge on Mexican soil. Joanna sets out on a personal journey through her family’s unique past, discovering numerous stories of those whose memories of Santa Rosa remain vivid 70 years later, in Poland, in the U.S., and in Mexico.
