Max & Me: A priest giving his life for others

Why Saint Maximilian Kolbe?

During World War II, a big-hearted polish priest protected and helped many jews while facing great challenges and making a lot of sacrifices on a relentless Nazi hunt, in which he, eventually, gave his life for another man on a concentration camp on Auschwitz. This is the love and serving story we want to tell the world based on our present days: Max & Me it’s an animated movie in which a rebellious young boy learns about sacrifice, compassion and faith with the life lessons of Saint Maximilian Kolbe through an unexpected encounter with an old grumpy veteran and holocaust survivor. This crossroad will change their lives forever. 

We need to recover, today more than ever before, the true value of the Sacraments, the Eucharist, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary

Maximilian’s lessons are a warm and hopeful message that is as important and deep as heard on those days. Produced under the highest audiovisual quality standards, we distinguish the role of a priest who have lived beyond a regular man by preaching and putting God’s love, his faith on the Virgin Mary, and serving others, before himself. True sacrifice and disinterest love expressed by Kolbe when giving his life for another man it’s also a fundamental pillar of the story, in which he finally becomes a superior human being. And lastly, the real meaning of the Eucharist and the lovely and endlessly Mother Mary protection are two lessons and values we must never loose. 

With this film, we wish to get hope and faith to those who need it, and also, to those who have lost it. Help us finish this production so we can all make this story transcend and get more people to be touched on their hearts.

This is the work of Saint Maximilian Kolbe

Canonized by Pope John Paul II, Maximilian Kolbe was not just a tireless Immaculate Heart of Mary promoter, but also a man ahead of its time; curious and playful when he was just a child, he later joined the Franciscan seminar in order to practice his priesthood and profess his love to Mary by organizing the Militia Immaculatae (Knights of the Immaculata), creating a devotional paper and founding a new Conventual Franciscan monastery at Niepokalanów called City of the Immaculate Mother of God, which later became one of the biggest complex for printed publications of its time.

With just faith and the love of Mother Mary by his side, he later travels to Japan where he ends up founding a new monastery to divulge his word despite not knowing the language.

Back in Poland, he continues his work and began a radio station while doing tests on TV format looking for new ways to spread the word of the Virgin Mary. Still in Poland, and after the outbreak of World War II, Kolbe receives and protects many of the people chased by the Nazi invasion in his monastery, where he organized a temporary hospital… later on, he was arrested and taken as prisoner to Auschwitz where he died when sacrificing his life for a stranger on the camps.
