“The Observatory” documentary | 36’ | 2018 | directed by Wiesław Romanowski | Poland-UK | The film will be shown in Polish with Ukrainian subtitles 

On the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the opening of the Marshal Józef Piłsudski Astronomical and Meteorological Observatory of the Warsaw University, the Polish Institute in Kyiv together with the Center of East European Studies of the Warsaw University invited Polish director Wiesław Romanowski to make the documentary film “The Observatory”, which tells the story of creation of this majestic building that was constructed in 1938 on the Pip Ivan mountain. Currently the observatory is being reconstructed, and at the time of its construction it was the most modern object of this kind in Poland and one of the two most modern mountain observatories in Europe.

”God in Krakow” fiction | 95’ | 2016 | directed by Dariusz Regucki | Poland 

A young politician who is considering accepting a bribe; a girl looking for love; a divorce lawyer at a crossroads; a petty thief who wants to steal a reliquary with the Blood of Christ; a married couple who long for a baby; a woman with a past and a man who struggles with his gambling addiction. What do all these people have in common?

Bóg w Krakowie (God in Cracow) tells a story of God’s Mercy and human longing for the Lord. It is set in modern times in an enchanting, mysterious, mystical city, which was chosen for the capital of the Divine Mercy by the Lord himself. As the paths of the characters cross, they are influenced by great saints, including saint John Paul II, saint Albert Chmielowski, saint Hedwig, saint Faustina Kowalska and even saint Rita. The incredible story plays out against a background of mystical places: in front of the Black Christ’s crucifix, a miraculous statue of Infant Jesus or the portrait of Our Lady of Freedom in the church of saint John the Baptist and saint John the Evangelist.
