"Corpus Christi" by Jan Komasa, our graduate and lecturer, is nominated for an Oscar 2020 in the International Feature Film category.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced nominations for the 92nd Oscars. Among them, in the International Feature Film category there is a film, "Corpus Christi" by Jan Komasa, our graduate and lecturer.

"Corpus Christi" is the story of a 20-year-old Daniel who experiences a spiritual transformation while living in a Youth Detention Center. He wants to become a priest but this is impossible because of his criminal record. When he is sent to work at a carpenter’s workshop in a small town, on arrival he dresses up as a priest and accidentally takes over the local parish. The arrival of the young, charismatic preacher is an opportunity for the local community to begin the healing process after a tragedy that happened there.

Another graduate of our school , Piotr Sobociński jr, worked as DOP on the film, "Corpus Christi".

The 92nd Academy Awards ceremony will take place in Dolby Theatre at the Hollywood & Highland Center, Sunday, February 9, 2020.
