The archbishop of Krakow, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, who was John Paul II’s personal secretary, will contribute to a film entitled, “A Life with Karol,” which will recount his more than four decades with the Polish Pope.
According to the cardinal’s spokesman, Father Robert Necek, the script for the movie was written by the cardinal himself, with the help of Catholic writer Gian Franco Svidercoschi and Polish filmmaker Pawel Pitera, who will be the director.
The film scheduled to be released next year, is a 140-minute fictional documentary. A TV version will also be made, with the film split into three 50-minute episodes.
The film’s title will be same as the book by Cardinal Dziwisz, which is being sold in Rome and Krakow. The script is in the form of interview carried out by Svidercoschi.
