About the film TESTIMONY
This 90-minute film adaptation of the book by Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, “A Life with Karol,”
is an intimate portrait of the Pope as a man as witnessed by his long-standing secretary and close friend.
Set against never-before-published documentary materials and photographs from the Vatican’s archives
and private collections, TESTIMONY reveals for the very first time facts from John Paul’s pontificate.
The film, shot on location in Vatican City, Kraków, and Wadowice, is narrated by British actor Michael York, (Cabaret, Jesus of Nazareth). The music that opens and closes the film is composed by the internationally renowned composer and Academy Award-winner, Vangelis. The remaining original score of Testimony has been composed by Polish musician, Robert Janson.
TESTIMONY tells the tale of an entire century in the history of Poland, Europe, and the world. The movie
also portrays John Paul II in the secular context. Defining the historical, political and sociological backdrop
to his pontificate, it illustrates the role of one of the greatest people in the history of Europe and the world.
