2019 saw a completion of the VALLEY OF THE GODS, a film shot in Utah, Los Angeles, Rome and in the castles of Poland. Written, directed and produced by Lech Majewski it weaves together three narrative threads: Navajo archaic legend about gods locked inside the rocks; a story of the wealthiest person on earth who lives hidden away from the world suffering from a personal tragedy; and that of the narrator, who works as a copywriter at the billionaire’s company. Josh Hartnett, John Malkovich, Berenice Marlohe, John Rhys-Davies and Keir Dullea are among the cast. “Valley of the Gods is a large-scale drama with a grand visual sweep. There are things in it that I will remember long after most of the more conventional movies of late have faded away – writes Peter Sobczynski for Roger Ebert. – Wonderfully unrestrained cinematic vision!” In the same year Majewski became a voting member of the American Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
