Gala Premières and special events

"A hard-rocking Polish builder is injured while working on a towering statue of Christ in Szumowska's scabrous and strangely affecting drama. A strange, engaging film - well and potently acted and directed, a drama that puts you inside its extended community with a mix of robust realism and a streak of fantasy comedy." (The Guardian) 

ATTENTION: The film will have English subtitles, not Dutch + French as previously announced.
