PRODUCTION: Pasikowski Shooting Spy Film in Washington

Written by

WASHINGTON: Polish director Władysław Pasikowski began filming the final segment of his spy biopic feature film Jack Strong on 21 April 2013 in Washington, D.C.

The shoot for the film started in January 2013 on location in Poland. The producer told FNE that the Washington shoot will involve scenes with American actor Patrick Wilson, who plays one
of the CIA agents and was in Poland for filming on earlier scenes.

The leading role, Cold War spy Colonel Ryszard Kukliński who went by the code name “Jack Strong,” is played by Marcin Dorociński. An all-star cast of Polish actors includes Maja Ostaszewska, Ireneusz Czop and Zbigniew Zamachowski.

The production is set in the 1970’s when Kukliński passed top secret Warsaw Pact documents
to the CIA, considered to be a significant contribution in keeping peace in Western Europe at the time. Kukliński is one of the most controversial characters in Polish history. "Poland still needs this
type of cinema because there are still issues we haven't tackled. It is great that cinema can make us re-think our history like that," Ostaszewska told FNE while filming on the set in Warsaw.

The film is produced by Scorpio Studio and coproduced by ITI Cinema and Orange Polska. The film received financial support from
the Polish Film Institute. The film will be distributed by ITI Cinema with the premiere planned for 7 February 2014.
