The Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival is proud to present the Academy Award nominated CORPUS CHRISTI by Jan Komasa. The first 50 people to use code CMUIFF at checkout get the film for FREE.
Inspired by true events, CORPUS CHRISTI tells the story of Daniel, a young man recently released from a Warsaw juvenile detention center. Daniel tries to attend a seminary but is rejected because of his violent background. Instead, he ends up impersonating a priest in a small town whose residents are dealing with the unresolved tensions created by a recent tragedy. Daniel seems to be doing his best to lead everyone from grief to forgiveness. But what will happen to him and the people of the town when his dark past catches up with him?
On Thursday, January 28 @ 7PM (EST), the CMU IFF will be emulating their in-person festival event by hosting a FREE Live Discussion on Zoom with Polish director Jan Komasa to discuss the film. Register for the discussion in advance here. Spots are limited.
This event is organized in conjunction with Row House Cinema. Sponsored by The Humanities Scholars Program, CMU’s Graduate Student Assembly, the Polish Cultural Institute New York, the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of Pittsburgh, and the Polish Falcons of America.
