'Our Lady of Czestochowa', is a religious film showing the history of the monastery and sanctuary of Jasna Gora (Bright Mountain) in Czestochowa, Poland. It is believed that Poland is under protection of the Black Madonna painting, a famous Catholic icon celebrated by Polish people on 15th August each year.

The Black Madonna Icon is a 122 x 82cm painting on a wooden panel which is shrouded by richly ornamented robes, jewels, legends and miracles. It is said to have been painted on the table top, made by Jesus for his Mother, by St. Luke.

The film takes you on a tour of Poland’s greatest religious shrine, including those places which are not accessible to ordinary visitors. This film help us understand the unique phenomenon of the Jasna Gora sanctuary.
