"THE MUSIC AND HISTORY OF THE MOST FAMOUS POLISH NEIGHBORHOOD IN AMERICA"
It was bright neon lights, local stores and smoke-filled dive bars that lined Milwaukee Avenue in the "Jackowo" neighborhood, as Chicago's Polish immigrants celebrated another weekend in Chicago. It was tens of thousands of them now residing in this new neighborhood, and while they worked hard, this notorious entertainment district offered a break from everyday reality, and brought them together to reminisce about the old days in Poland. Escaping the oppressive communist system in Poland, they were able to experience an entirely different world. Among them, were some of the most iconic and legendary performers, musicians, and singers who came to the United States to entertain and seek financial freedom.
"A Night On Milwaukee Ave." tells the story of the most famous Polish neighborhood in America through the people and legendary stars who lived and performed along Milwaukee Ave in the last decades of the 20th century. Featuring musical icons like Krzysztof Krawczyk and Urszula, award-winning filmmakers Adrian Prawica & Rafał Muskała take you back in time when Jackowo was the center of entertainment and the Polish experience in America.

THE FOURTH PARTITION
At the Dawn of the 20th century, Chicago was the second largest city in the United States with over 2,000,000 residents. It was also the center of Polish culture and political activism in America. With Poland partitioned between Russia, Austria and Germany, over 4,000,000 Poles immigrated to the United States between 1870 and 1920 in search of a better life. In Chicago, they worked in some of the most dangerous factories and mills in the United States. In their neighborhoods, they built communities, churches, and most of all, aided their beloved Poland in her fight for independence. Their story is known as the "Fourth Partition".
