On Monday, May 22nd at 08:00 PM at Olympia 3, the “Two Crowns” will have its world premiere during the 70th Cannes Film Festival.
The movie that was filmed thanks to your support will enter to the Polish cinemas on October 13th.
Maksymilian Kolbe Film Foundation is a foundation which aims at supporting the development of culture and art by promoting Christian values in the public and social life. So far, we have cooperated in the production and distribution of films such as Pilecki or Matteo.
At present, we are producing the feature documentary Dwie Korony (Two Crowns) where, for the first time, we present the life of Rajmund Kolbe – future Saint Maksymilian.
We have finished shooting the scenes in Italy and Poland. Next, we are going to shoot scenes in Japan where Fr Kolbe built a monastery and started his missionary work in that part of the world. Next stage is the shooting of feature scenes: Adam Woronowicz himself agreed to play Fr Maksymilian Kolbe. Many prominent actors and actresses such as Cezary Pazura, Zbigniew Zamachowski, Artur Barciś, Dominika Figurska, Maciej Musiał or Marcin Kwaśny will appear in the documentary as well.
This incredible film, which will present unknown facts from Fr Kolbe’s life, can be produced thanks to financial help of all of us. We want to treat it as a monument of the Saint “built” by us to thank for his life. The budget is PLN 750,000, of which one third was covered by us. We still need PLN 500,000 to finish the film. For one person it is a big sum of money, but for 10 thousand it is not. I hope that we can collect funds together! We owe it to St Maksymilian Kolbe!
I ask for your support by sending even the smallest amount to the Maksymilian Kolbe Film Foundation bank account* and by sharing the information with others.
Thank you in advance!
Michał Kondrat – director of Two Crowns
*Funds that will not be used during the realization of the film, will be provided for next projects of the Foundation according to its statutory rules.
