WARSAW: Jacek Bromski is in postproduction with Solid Gold, a political thriller starring Andrzej Seweryn and Janusz Gajos, inspired by one of the most controversial financial scams in the history of modern Poland.
Solid Gold, written and directed by Jacek Bromski, gives a behind the scenes look at the police and special services. It is a story about policemen investigating business and political connections in Pomerania and working on a group that creates a financial pyramid scam offering investments for a suspiciously high percentage. The all-star cast includes Janusz Gajos, Andrzej Seweryn and Marta Nieradkiewicz, accompanied by Olgierd Łukaszewicz, Mateusz Kościukiewicz, Piotr Stramowski, Danuta Stenka, Ewa Kasprzyk, Krzysztof Stroiński, Maciej Maleńczuk, Artur Żmijewski and many others.
"Solid Gold is inspired by real events and fits in the category of political fiction films that reveal links unclear to the viewer and talks about matters happening outside the official message. This scenario tells a story that is made up and dramatised for the needs of the film, however it is based on real events, according to the principle that fiction should shyly imitate life," Jacek Bromski said in an official statement.
The film was shot in 2019 on location in Gdynia, produced by Michał Kwieciński and his company Akson Studio in coproduction with TVP, FINA and Gdynia Culture Center. The final budget has not been announced yet. The film will open in Polish cinemas on 5 July 2019, distributed by TVP Distribution.
