“Katherine of Alexandria, a wonderful film starring amongst others, Nicole Keniheart and Peter O’Toole (on his last film role) will be released in the US under the title ‘Decline of an Empire’. I am happy to have created a collaboration, through ‘Cinema Music Consulting’, between composer John Koutselinis and KOA films. Katherine of Alexandria will be released on 12th August, by Lionsgate (US).
“Katherine of Alexandria, brought up as a nomad and living in the desert, was aged just 11 when Emperor Maxentius saw her whilst out on patrol. Consumed by her beauty, impudence and uncanny talent for languages, he abducted the child, killing her family. The slaughter was witnessed by her young friend, Constantine, who would later become Emperor of the Western Roman Empire. He never lost hope of finding Katherine. As a young woman, Katherine refused to submit to Maxentius’ offers of marriage and she continually denounced his brutal enforcement of pagan religion upon the masses. Still obsessed with her beauty, Maxentius brought Katherine before 50 of Rome’s finest scholars in an open court in Alexandria, where she eloquently demolished their arguments. When Constantine learned of Katherine’s whereabouts and imprisonment at the hands of Maxentius, he led his army from York in a desperate bid to save her.
