Polish premiere: "In the name of..." by Małgośka Szumowska

Our festival is slowly coming to an end. Today at 6.30 p.m. the organizers of 13th T-Mobile New Horizons are going to present the award to all of the winners in various categories. To honor this special occasion we decided to screen Małgorzata Szumowska's new film „In the name of...”. It's a unique and deeply moving story about a man who struggles with an intimate drama. It tells a story of a priest whose unfulfilled love is set in the conservative catholic society. When Adam (Andrzej Chyra) moves to the new parish, he quickly decides to organize a center for anti-social people. As he arrives, he instantly wins the favor of all of the locals. He's energetic, charismatic and open-minded. However, his new friendship with one of the local outsiders (Mateusz Kościukiewicz) will force him to cope with his own secret problems, that have been worrying him for a long time now.

Besides Andrzej Chyra and Mateusz Kościukiewicz there are several well-known Polish actors appearing in the film: Maja Ostaszewska, Łukasz Simlat, Tomasz Schuchardt and Olgierd Łukaszewicz. Michał Englert, the winner of last year's Sundance film festival and the laureate of Polish Film Festival in Gdynia for Jacek Borcuch's „Lasting”  was responsible for film's cinematography. Szumowska's „In the name of...” had its world premiere during this year's Berlinale, where it won  Teddy Award (as well as Pedro Almodóvar, Tilda Swinton, Francois Ozon during previous editions of festival). „In the name of...” was appreciated in Dortmund during IFF Dortmund|Cologne 2013. Szumowska's film competed with various films, but finally won the main prize of the festival. „In the name of...” got also the award during IFF Mix Milano 2013 and left Neisse Film Festival Zittau 2013  with a prize for the best picture. At the same time Andrzej Chyra was honoured with a prize for the best actor.
