The shooting of these films are planned to be carried out in the original locations where the historical events took place, traversing the “never seen before” documented facts of the characters through the plot within the imposing landscapes and locations of Poland, Hungary, Italy, Czech Republic, Germany, Swiss and France, and in cities such as Warsaw, Dresden , Berlin, Vienna, Venice, Geneva and the glorious Paris.
This colossal project has involved the Producers Andrew Vajna, Donna White, Milos Twilight, Brigitte Guillon and Gabriel Fiorentino; with Milos Twilight as the Writer and Director, in addition to the special participation of Jean Claude Menou (former Director of Heritage of French Culture) as narrator of Documentary.
