While serving his sentence in a youth detention centre, Daniel (Bartosz Bielenia) has a spiritual awakening. After his release, Daniel is sent to work as a carpenter in a small town, but is mistaken for a priest and takes over the parish under the suspicious eyes of sexton Lidia (Aleksandra Konieczna). Inspired by real events, Corpus Christi is a beautifully-crafted dissection of how the collective psyche deals with tragedy and redemption. The film won 11 awards at the Gdynia Polish Film Festival, with further prizes at Venice Film Festival and Chicago International Film Festival. It was nominated for Best International Feature Film at this year’s Academy Awards.
