Film Kosciuszko:  A Man Ahead of His Time paints a compelling picture of Kosciuszko as a champion of freedom and civil rights both in the United States and Poland. It focuses on Kosciuszko's role in the American Revolution and his relationships with America's Founding Fathers, and features historical reenactment as well as interviews with former White House National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski, Brigadier General Theodore D. Martin, Purdue Professor James S. Pula, UCLA Professor Gary Nash, Dr. Betsey Blakeslee of The Kościuszko Garden at West Point, and the Founder of the Kraków Jewish Culture Festival, Janusz Makuch.

Alex Storozynski, President Emeritus, and current Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Kosciuszko Foundation published a biography of Tadeusz Kosciuszko, The Peasant Prince: Thaddeus Kosciuszko and the Age of Revolution, in 2009 and won several awards, including the 2010 Fraunces Tavern Museum Book Award and the Knights Templar Military History Award, the "Military Order of Saint Louis."

Alex Storozynski is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, who has been widely published in the United States and in Europe. 
The Polish magazine Przeglad named Mr. Storozynski one of the "100 most influential Poles living abroad."
