The Life of Karol Wojtyla - Pope John Paul II. Based on the book, Witness to Hope by George Weigel, this film is the most complete and intimate film ever made on Pope John Paul II. Pope John Paul II is a poet, playwright, actor, mystic, and head of the Roman Catholic Church. Shaped by the terrors of World War II and the subsequent brutalities of the Communist era in Poland, John Paul II became one of the world's greatest defenders of religious freedom and human rights. Filmed on location in Krakow and Rome, this richly textured documentary traces the personal life and struggles of John Paul II. As an underground seminarian in Nazi-occupied Poland, Karol Wojtyla practised his faith, even at the risk of imprisonment and death. He became the youngest bishop in Poland and the first non-Italian pope in more than 450 years. He challenged political oppression in Poland, championed human rights in Cuba, and travelled the world. Witness to Hope follows The Pope's spiritual journey, his struggles and triumphs using rare historical stills, archive film, and original location footage. Released:2003, Universal Studios. Run Time: 116 minutes. PAL DVD, Region 2 (This DVD may not be viewable outside Europe.) Classification: Exempt.
