Stefan and Anna
This is absolutely wonderful news, well done and definitely will purchase movie when it comes on sale.
Dear group members,
I am very excited to pass on the news that the film THE OFFICER'S WIFE, directed by our member Piotr Uzarowicz, was screened last week at the Indie Gems Film Festival in Sydney Australia, co-presented by Kresy-Siberia (Australia), and won festival awards for Audience Choice for Best Feature Film and Best Director!
Congratulations go to Piotr, who is racking up an impressive series of Film Festivals for the film, and who is coming to London UK (and other UK locations TBA) for a special screening on 17 September 2012. A trailer for the film can be seen at the Director's Website http://www.theofficerswifemovie.com/ and copies of the film will be available for purchase there as well (soon, but not yet).
Big thanks go to group member and Kresy-Siberia (Australia) Director, Anna Pacewicz, for all of her efforts and energies to bring the film to Australia, first at a private pre-screening at the Consulate General in Sydney and then at this Festival. For Anna this is particularly significant as her grandfather, Jan Pacewicz, was killed by the Soviet NKWD at the Bukownia site of the Katyn murders.
Special thanks also go to Consul General Daniel Gromann, who made the time to come out to introduce the film and put it into proper historical context for the audience.
PS attached are the front and back of the postcards we gave to the audience at the screening.
