The Polish Institute of Equestrian Culture is an organization established for the purpose of promoting the culture and history of pure bred Arabian Horse.
For this reason we have decided to take on the production of a documentary film with fabular features “HORSES OF THE EMIR” based on a screenplay written by Władysław Wybiński. The film is about the legendary Count Wacław Rzewuski, also known in the Arab countries in the 19th century as Emir Taj al-Fahr (the Crown of Fame).
An epic, dramatic story of a Polish aristocrat who travelled thousands of miles 200 years ago to reach the deserts of Arabia. He accepted the title of Prince from the local rulers, fought at the side of his Arab friends, lived with them, learnt and described their traditions.
He then returned home bringing with him the most refined Arabian horses, which became the foundation stock for Polish Arabian horse breeding that became world famous. He was a great oriental and Arab scholar, traveler, warrior, pure bred Arabian horse breeder. He loved the arabian horses and Arab culture more than anything else in his life.
The documentary will be 60 minutes long. According to the assumptions of its producer and director the film is to be broadcast by Polish and foreign TV, as well as to be presented at various film festivals arround the world.
We invite you to keep track of this fascinating project.
The film is at the last stage of pre-production (preparation). The process of raising financing for the project is also in progress.
The Polish Institute of Equestrian Culture is open to negotiations with partners interested in supporting production of the film.
