The Life of Karol Wojtyla - Based on George Weigel's definitive biography of Pope John Paull II, this major new film is the most complete and intimate film ever made on the Pope. Filmed on location in Rome and Poland, and using rare footage from the Vatican vaults provided by the Pope himself, this film about the Pope's extraordinary life is unique because it is shot, as it were, through his own eyes. It brings to life the history, characters and relationships that he has experienced and reveals them in a profound and creative way. ....Catholic video documentaries, biography, Pope John Paul II
