MFF Praha – Febiofest

Corpus Christi, a social drama by Polish director Jan Komasa, which is among the five nominees for Best International Feature Film in this year’s Academy Awards, will receive its Czech premiere at the 27th edition of Febiofest.

The picture, starring the distinctive Polish actor Bartosz Bielenia, tells the story of 20-year-old Daniel. He cannot be officially ordained because of his past but nevertheless wears priestly garb at a small-town parish. The story of a young man who undergoes a spiritual transformation at a youth detention centre received its world premiere to great acclaim at the Venice IFF. It is the third film by Jan Komasa, who is known to Czech audiences for Warsaw 44. It was shown at Febiofest in 2015.
