“In the Name of” by Małgorzata Szumowska in Confrontations Cinema

As we have informed before the cycle Confrontations Cinema, in which we present ambitious Polish and foreign productions,  is coming back in April.

During the first edition we will present the film by Małgorzata Szumowska “In the Name of”, with outstanding performances by Andrzej Chyra, Maja Ostaszewska and Mateusz Kościukiewicz.

Father Adam takes over a small parish in the middle of nowhere. He organizes a community centre for boys with troubled pasts. His energy appreciated, the locals accept him as one of their own.  Everybody wants to be close to him, feeding off of his vitality and power, but no one knows he harbors his own secret. After meeting an eccentric and silent young man, a local pariah, Father Adams is forced to confront a long forgotten burden and passion. As the villagers’ worst suspicions are validated, Father Adam becomes the obvious enemy.

Directed by Małgośka Szumowska, winner of this year’s Teddy Award at the Berlin Film Festival, In the Name Of is a gripping and controversial look at sexuality in the church, steeped in religious symbolism resonating with current issues in today’s society.
