Join us for an evening celebration of Poland's rich and distinctive Polish film culture, where tasty and authentic Polish snacks will be on hand. MK Gallery and ICMK are proud to present one of first UK Premiere dates for In the Name Of, which won Best Feature film in the Teddy Awards Berlin 2013.

Directed by auteur Malgoska Szumowska (Elles, Scenes from Life, Stranger), In the Name Of is a gripping and controversial look at homosexuality in the church, steeped in religious symbolism resonating with current issues in today's society.


Father Adam takes over a small parish in the middle of nowhere. He organizes a community centre for boys with troubled past. His energy is appreciated, the locals 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 harbors 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 an obvious enemy.

This event has been programmed in collaboration with Polish Women’s Short Film Festival programmer Magda Ceron.
