WARSAW: Roman Polanski returned to Krakow for the shoot of a biographical film about his childhood, accompanied by his friend and photographer, Ryszard Horowitz.
Polanski was able to do so because the Polish Supreme Court had dismissed the US’s case asking for his extradition to face charges after pleading guilty to a case of unlawful sex with a minor. Polanski has not returned to the US since fleeing to avoid sentencing in 1978.
In Poland, Polanski visited the village near Krakow where he hid during WWII, when his family was imprisoned in a concentration camp.
The film, Polanski, Horowitz, is produced by Anna Kokoszka-Romer and Krakow-based KRK Film Studio.
