Wojciech Kilar

I spoke with him once.   I somehow got his number and called "of the street and out of the blue" to ask for a permission to use in a documentary a quote from him music written for Wajda's "The Promised Land".   I was nervous and doubtful if he even talks to me.   (He was already huge, having worked with Coppola and Campion.)

I managed to briefly explain the project.   Amazingly, he agreed immediately.  He said that he would be glad if his music has "a second life", that it would make him happy.   He sounded genuine, positive and energetic.

It was not only a big artistic help, a valuable production contribution, but also a genuine, simple good deed.
