WARSAW: Writer/director/producer Jan Jakub Kolski is working on a new drama, the Polish/Czech coproduction Pardon. Shooting is planned for autumn of 2017.
"The story is set in 1946 and follows a married couple who travel through Poland with a casket containing the body of their 26-year-old son. They want to bury him in peace. I based this story on the life of my uncle Wacław Szewczyk, who was a ‘cursed soldier’. He was shot by the communist regime’s Secret Police (UB) and he could not get peace, as UB dug him out of the grave three times, and each time his parents wanted to give him a proper burial. So they travel to bury him where there is peace and quiet", Jan Jakub Kolski told FNE.
