A new film I composed a score "Wyszyński - Revenge or Forgiveness" which premiered yesterday, directed and produced by Syka Brothers @high_hope_films_
stars @ksaweryszlenkier_official as Stefan Wyszyński and @malgorzatakozuchowska_
as Mother Elżbieta.
Polish President Andrzej Duda took part in the premiere of the film, in connection with the beatification ceremony of Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński and mother Elżbieta Róża Czacka. “I have to say I’m touched,” he said
Around 7,000 people took part in their beatification celebrations at Warsaw’s Temple of Divine Providence, including around 600 priests, 80 bishops from Poland and 45 bishops from abroad.
Stefan Wyszyński was a towering figure in post-war Poland. As Primate of Poland from 1948 until his death in 1981, he guided the Church through a gauntlet of difficulties and suffered repression at the hands of the communists.
Mother Elżbieta set up an education and care centre for blind orphans in Laski, near Warsaw, and adapted the Braille alphabet to the Polish language.
To mark the occasion, in what may be a cinema first, an official Church-supported beatification film revealing the pair’s shocking experiences during the Warsaw Uprising received its cinema premiere later in the evening.
In 1949, he initiated talks with the communist authorities, which resulted in an agreement in 1950 that allowed the Church some degree of freedom.
In 1953, though, when the authorities reneged on their earlier agreements, Wyszyński was arrested. He was held until 1956 in internment camps. He suffered hunger and cold, yet he maintained his resolute Christian faith.
Original score recorded by the amazing musicians from the Polish Military Orchestra and Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz conducted by Major Dominik Sierzputowski.
Thank you to the all involved musicians and entire @idmusic.pl team: Roman Drozd, Michal Dul, Mateusz Bogdalin, Krzysztof Ostrowski for a great energy during rehearsals, recordings, commitment and full professionalism!
