Film epic about Polish-American hero Kościuszko planned

05.03.2021 07:40
Preparations are underway for a historical epic based on the life of Tadeusz Kościuszko, a national hero in both Poland and the United States, who fought in the Continental Army in the War of Independence.

The movie is to be directed by Paweł Maślona, 38, whose Panic Attack (2017) was acclaimed as one of the most successful feature film debuts in recent years.

The script is by Michał A. Zieliński and the film is to be produced by Leszek Bodzak and Aneta Hickinbotham for Aurum Film, the production house behind Jan Komasa’s Oscar-nominated Corpus Christi.

The new movie, with the working title Scarborn, has received development funding from the Polish Film Institute. Filming is to start in 2022.

Variety magazine writes that Scarborn “tells the story of the war veteran Kościuszko, a trusted ally of Gen. George Washington’s and a colonel in the Continental Army, who returns to his native Poland with his valet and confidant, Jean Lapierre, a Black man who was known as Domingo.

“Together the duo fight to liberate Polish serfs from an oppressive feudal system, sparking a national uprising against the Russian Empire in 1794, a doomed effort that would bring an end to Polish sovereignty for the next 123 years,” Variety adds.
