Stations of the Cross

Kreuzweg · dir. Dietrich Brüggemann
Germany, France 2014, 107’
Polish premiere


19 October, 19:15 · Od Nowa – new hall

Maria, 14, lives in a small town in southern Germany, together with her parents and three siblings — Thomas, 11, Katharina, 4, and Johannes, 4, who is mute. The family follows very a rigorous Catholic code of conduct and belongs to a fictitious Society of Saint Paul congregation, whose leaders do not accept the reforms introduced to the Catholic Church in 1960s. The dominating mother fears the adolescence of her daughter, while Maria's father is extremely detached from family life, as he has no say in his own home. Living according to rigorous rules leaves no room for individual development and spiritual searching. Teenage Maria is a humble person and faithful to rules, so she prepares for confirmation, under the tutelage of a local priest. The cleric teaches his God-fearing students about the meaning of sacrifice and the exceptional status that the soldiers of Christ have in the eyes of God. Maria is bewitched by his stories, as she is fascinated with martyr saints. The seed of believing in miracles sown in her soul is beginning to sprout.
