Austin-shot 'Forgiveness' returns as 'Esther's Diary'
I had a nice chat with Mariusz Kotowski in 2007 on the Austin set of Forgiveness. He was shooting at Austin Community College, where I teach, so I literary ran into the film.
The former dance instructor and choreographer also shot a documentary about Polish actress Pola Negri, who spent her last days in San Antonio. Forgiveness is about two women, one Jewish and the other Christian, who discover their families' histories are intertwined through events of World War II.
Now comes word that the film has been recut and retitled Esther's Diary. A screening is planned in Austin later this month. Here's some good insight into the film.
