Winner of this year’s Teddy Award for Best Feature Film at the 63rd Berlin International Film Festival, IN THE NAME OF is a Polish film that centres on a priest who takes over a small parish in the middle of nowhere.Father Adam organises a community centre for boys with troubled pasts, and so the locals soon accept him as one of their own. Everybody wants to be close to him, feeding off of his vitality and power, but no one knows he harbours his own secret. After meeting an eccentric and silent young man, a local pariah, Father Adams is forced to confront a long forgotten burden and passion. As the villagers’ worst suspicions are validated, Father Adam becomes the obvious enemy.
