2020 ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE Inspired by true events, Jan Komasa's multi award-winning drama CORPUS CHRISTI is a remarkable tale of morality and redemption, about a charismatic young ex-convict who fooled an entire Polish village by falsely posing as a priest. 20-year-old Daniel (Bartosz Bielenia, a major screen discovery) has found God whilst incarcerated in a youth detention centre, but his criminal record excludes him from entering the seminary. At the end of his sentence he is sent to a small town to take up a position in a woodworking factory, but thanks to a stolen collar is mistakenly taken as the parish's new clergyman. It's a seemingly God-given opportunity for transformation, and Daniel whilst wholly unconventional in his approach (and after a shaky start) takes to the pulpit with a fervour and compassion that his predecessor has clearly lacked. Meanwhile, the arrival of this magnetic young preacher seems to be the spark needed for the town to acknowledge a recent tragedy that has affected the entire community, one that few have been able to speak about. But not everyone is open to his approach, and Daniel learns the hard way that following the road to salvation can also lead one astray Astutely navigating themes of faith, virtue and forgiveness, Komasa's disciplined and unflinching direction is exponentially enhanced by the simply jaw-dropping lead performance from young Bielenia. Widely hailed by critics and audiences as the stand-out discovery of the 2019 Venice and Toronto Film Festivals, CORPUS CHRISTI became a box office sensation in Poland, overtaking Pawel Pawlikowski's 'Cold War' by achieving over 1.35 million admissions. It demands and deserves equal international attention

"Polish teen drama directed by Jan Komasa. After a foolish dare at a high school prom afterparty results in Dominik (Jakob Gierszal) being humiliated both at school and on social networking sites, he becomes reclusive and spends much of his time on a website called The Suicide Room. The people he meets on the website, particularly Sylwia (Roma Gasiorowska), encourage Dominik to change his real image to coincide with the one he has forged himself in the virtual world. The film, through the use of animation and live action, shows the consequences of Dominik's merging of fantasy and reality." -- cataloger's summary

Treasure that, she tells him. As Dominik's depression worsens, and his wealthy, inattentive parents fail to deal with the problem, @SuicideRoom follows Dominik's virtual experience (in stunning animated sequences) as his online adventures begin to dangerously bleed into his real life

Gorod 44 "(Miasto 44) was produced and released for the 70th anniversary of the Warsaw Uprising, which took place in August of 1944, and lasted for two months." The movie is a 127 minute "long story of Stefan, a young and naive Polish teenager who gets pulled into the Polish Underground Resistance organization by his neighbor, who happens to be a girl his age, nicknamed Kama. Kama is secretly in love with Stefan, however Stefan is more concerned with his family (widow mother and younger brother) and with the talk on the streets of the upcoming uprising. Kama quickly introduces Stefan to the Polish resistance organization (they are women and men his age). One beautiful summer day right before the outbreak of the uprising, Stefan meets Alice a.k.a. Biedronka (Ladybug), younger sister of one of the resistance fighters. They meet on the bank of the near by river Wisla, and their first encounter will make them fall crazy in love with each other. The love triangle between Stefan, Biedronka, and Kama will be the epicenter of this melodramatic war movie. However, only one of the girls will go the extra length to be with Stefan. The ending of the movie, or rather the final scene is left to viewers own interpretation"--Amazon.com

After spending years in a Warsaw prison for a violent crime, 20-year-old Daniel is released and sent to a remote village to work as a manual laborer. The job is designed to keep the ex-con busy, but Daniel has a higher calling. Over the course of his incarceration he has found Christ, and aspires to join the clergy - but his criminal record means no seminary will accept him. When Daniel arrives in town, one quick lie allows him to be mistaken for the town's new priest, and he sets about leading his newfound flock. Though he has no training, his passion and charisma inspire the community. At the same time, his unconventional sermons and unpriestly behavior raise suspicions among some of the townsfolk - even more so as he edges towards a dark secret that the community hasn't revealed in the confessional booth
