Society | June 3, 2002, Monday // 00:00
The film "Quo Vadis" of prominent Polish director Jerzy Kawalerowicz opened the first Black Sea Star international cinema festival June 2. Kawalerowicz, who was awarded for his contribution to the world cinema, said preparations for this film have been going on for about 40 years. "Quo Vadis" was shown in the Vatican and was seen by Pope John Paul II. In Poland it attracted 4.5 million, which is about as much as box-office hits such as "Harry Potter" and "Lord of the Rings". The film will premiere in the U.S. next spring. Talks will be held Tuesday on whether Bulgaria will join the 17 countries that have bought the rights to screen the film. The Black Sea Star 2002 is underway in Varna, Dobrich and the resort of Albena within the TV World 2002 international media festival.
