OUR STORY

Road 28 Productions was founded in 2004 by Kuba and Kinga Luczkiewicz. Kuba studied Film & TV at The Jagiellonian University in Krakow (Poland), and in 1990 he settled in Chicago where he married Kinga. In 1993, Kuba started his television career as a co-producer and editor of a weekly travel series, which ran successfully for three seasons. While working on the series, Kuba began an artistic collaboration with Miroslaw Rogala's renowned Outerpretation Studio, where he contributed as a cinematographer and editor on many of the studio’s acclaimed projects, including “Divided We Stand”, (presented at the Museum of Contemporary Arts in Chicago). From 1997 to 2003, Kuba worked as a TV producer at TVP U.S.A., the U.S. branch of Poland's largest public television channel, where he created over 50 hours of television programming. Throughout Kuba's career, his passion for the filmmaking process put him on the set of several Hollywood productions, such as “Joshua”, where he worked with Academy Award winner Murray F. Abraham, or “Children On Their Birthdays” (with Tom Arnold and Christopher McDonald). In 1998 Kuba filmed a behind-the-scenes featurette for Adek Drabinski's “The Trap”. A year later Kuba was commissioned by HBO to film a behind-the-scenes featurette for Boguslaw Linda's “Sucker’s Season”.

Over the years, Kinga's creative contribution to Kuba's work had been increasing, and in 2004 the couple founded Road 28 Production. Initially, they focused on producing commercials and TV-commissioned documentaries such as “Padre Szeliga”, “700 Miles from Hollywood”, “God’s Dearest”, and "American Masters: Greta Kempton". In 2011, Kuba and Kinga jumped into the independent film scene with comedy short “Houseless Hunters”, which received “The Best of Open Film Festival 2011” in the category of Reality TV Parody.  Subsequently, "Houseless Hunters", along with their next film “Crossroads” (co-produced by Two 9 Productions), was aired worldwide on the ShortsHD channel. In addition to international exposure, "Crossroads"   was also screened locally at the 2014 Naperville Independent Film Festival. “Void”, filmed in 2015, premiered in The Best Microfilms of 2015 and qualified as an Official Selection of the 2015 Fort Myers Film Festival.

In 2012, Kuba and Kinga started working on their first full-length feature debut "Barista", written as a multi-layered thriller, currently in development. In 2015, Road 28 got on board with a feature film project (co-produced with Two 9 Productions). "Every 21 Seconds" is a motion picture based on the true story of Brian Sweeney, a traumatic brain injury survivor. Film had theatrical premiere in April 2018.

Next documentary project took Road 28 Productions to the very distant locations. "Labor of Love" was shot pro bono, in the most remote parts Zambia. Premiered in 2019, this full-length documentary give us a close look at the everyday life of underdeveloped African communities.
