DIR: Malgoska Szumowska
CAST: Andrzej Chyra, Mateusz Kosciukiewicz, Maja Ostaszewska
Poland, 2013, 102 min, Polish with Hebrew and English Subtitles

In the Name Of is the captivating and emotionally powerful story of a charismatic Catholic priest struggling to reconcile his deep-rooted faith with the desires he has long fought to suppress. Father Adam is the spiritual head of a small parish in rural Poland where he also oversees a centre for troubled teenage boys.

Director Szumowska has crafted a beautifully textured and visually powerful work that takes a humane, non-judgemental look at the contradictions of Catholicism and sexuality. The film is an engaging portrait of confused emotions, longing and loneliness, and leaves us with the hope that, in accepting our failings, there is a chance for happiness and self-acceptance.

In the Name of won the Teddy Award for Best Feature at the Berlin International Film Festival.
