Movie Info

Polish filmmaker Jerzy Lukaszewicz directs the religious drama Faustina, based on the real life of Sister Mary Faustina, born Helena Kowalska in 1905 as the third of ten children. Even as a child, she had experienced visions of Jesus Christ, which would continue throughout her life. In 1925, she joined the Polish convents of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy and took the name Sister Mary Faustina. This film features dramatized stories from her life, based on actual writings from her spiritual journals and personal diaries. Faustina died of tuberculosis in 1938, was beatified as a saint in 1993, and canonized in 2000 by Pope John Paul II. Starring Dorota Segda and Danuta Szaflarska, Faustina won Best Feature at the Catholic Film Festival in 1995. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovimore
