Program: Next IEAS Film Club presents a special Polish movie entitled In the Name of.
Father Adam is a Catholic priest who discovered his calling as a servant of God at the relatively late age of 21. He lives in a village in the rural Poland, where he works with teenagers with behavioural problems. Adam knows that he has affection for men and his vocation to the priesthood is a flight from his own sexuality. When he meets Lukasz, the strange and taciturn son of a simple rural family, Adam’s self-imposed abstinence becomes a heavy burden.
Discussion following the film is led by Ádám Jurewicz volunteer leader of DebrecenPride’s LMBTQI group.
The film is screened in Polish with English subtitles. Running time is 102 minutes. The film is directed by Małgorzata Szumowska. Admission is free.
