.- Two award winning Hollywood actors will be on hand for the DVD release of an acclaimed film on the life of Pope John Paul II.

Shot on location in Rome and Poland, Pope John Paul II follows Karol Wojtyla's journey from his youth in Poland to his pontificate. It explores how he touched millions of people, defended the dignity of mankind and changed the face of the Church and the world.

The film, which originally aired as two-part television series on CBS, features Jon Voight's powerful, Emmy Award-winning performance as the Pope, and Cary Elwes as the young Karol.

Voight and Elwes will be at a gala screening of the film on Nov. 11, which will also mark the DVD release. The DVD is closed captioned, and it includes Spanish subtitles and a special 16-page collectible booklet.  It’s being exclusively distributed by Catholic publisher, Ignatius Press.

The event, organized by Ignatius Press, is open to all. Those who register by Oct. 30 will be entered to win the following set of outstanding items: Pope John Paul II Special Edition DVD; Witness to Hope, the best-selling biography of Pope John Paul II by George Weigel, and a poster featuring Jon Voight in his role as the Pope. The three winners will be announced at the event.

It will be held Nov. 11 at Our Lady of Peace Hall (2800 Mission College Blvd.) in Santa Clara. Wine and an hors d'oeuvres buffet will be served before the screening. There will be reception, speakers, and a signing afterwards
