Testimony is a groundbreaking feature film documentary event that chronicles the untold story of Pope John Paul II, a man who touched the lives of billions, and was one of the 20th Century's most influential leaders.
Recounted through in-depth interviews with the Pontiff's trusted advisor and right-hand man for 40 years, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz - and blended with recently uncovered and never-before-seen archival footage of John Paul's early career and eventual ascendancy to the papacy, Testimony is a revealing portrait of a man who touched the lives of billions, and changed history.
Lovingly narrated by Michael York, featuring music by Oscar-winning composer Vangelis, filmed in hitherto off-limits locations in the Vatican, the film is full of new and fascinating revelations about the Pope. Testimony is winning converts the world over thanks to massive press and media coverage of the film's premiere screening at the Vatican - attended by Pope Benedict, various heads of state, and thousands of multi-denominational spectators on October 16th, 2008.
Among the many amazing revelations in this ground-breaking documentary:
• Pope John Paul II was stabbed during a second failed assassination attempt that was kept secret by the Vatican...until now.
• Pope John Paul II liked to disguise himself and sneak out of the Vatican to mix with the people incognito.
• The Pontiff began his career as an actor, and had a great talent for Karaoke.
• His Holiness performed an exorcism.
The inspiring story of the Pontiff's life is told through rare archive footage, historical recreations, and key interviews with Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz and others who knew John Paul II.
This DVD includes the following language options: English or Spanish. It also includes a wonderful Making Of featurette, and a beautiful photo slideshow that includes inspirational quotes made by the beloved Pontiff during his remarkable life.
