PREVIEW SCREENINGS:

XABO: FATHER BONIECKI | XABO: KSIĄDZ BONIECKI
(Aleksandra Potoczek) PL 2020, 73’
(in Polish without subtitles)


The film title refers to the initials used by Father Adam Boniecki to sign his articles in "Tygodnik Powszechny". This weekly is the only place where he can publish after a ban was imposed on him by the Catholic Church leaders. Since then the priest has been even more active participating in over 200 meetings with his readers every year. The film is an intimate portrait of a man on the road. It shows a priest, aged 85, who can always find time for a meaningful conversation and, simultaneously, remains torn between his faith and concern about the condition of the contemporary Church, in particular in Poland.

 

ALSO ON OUR SCREENS:


EASTERN | EASTERN
(Piotr Adamski) PL 2019, 78'

Behind the gates of a housing estate, a peculiar game is being played. The life of its wealthy residents is regulated by an honorary, patriarchal code. The Kowalski and Nowak families have been entangled in a family blood vendetta for years.

JUST MERCY | JUST MERCY
(Destin Daniel Cretton), US 2019, 137'
(in English with Polish subtitles)

A powerful and thought-provoking true-story, Just Mercy follows young lawyer Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his history-making battle for justice. After graduating from Harvard, Bryan might have had his pick of lucrative jobs. Instead, he heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned, with the support of local advocate Eva Ansley (Larson.) One of his first, and most incendiary, cases is that of Walter McMillian (Foxx,) who, in 1987, was sentenced to die for the notorious murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite a preponderance of evidence proving his innocence and the fact that the only testimony against him came from a criminal with a motive to lie. In the years that follow, Bryan becomes embroiled in a labyrinth of legal and political maneuverings and overt and unabashed racism as he fights for Walter, and others like him, with the odds-and the system-stacked against them.


SO LONG, MY SUN | DI JIUTIANCHANG
(Wang Xiaoshuai) CN 2018 180'
(in Chinese with Polish subtitles)

Two married couples adjust to the vast social and economic changes taking place in China from the 1980s to the present.
