God and Lunaparks' Warriors

Poland2022documentary77'National Competition

A son, overwhelmed by a religious zeal, embarks upon a crusade to convert his father. It is a highly daunting task – mostly due to the personality of the latter. His father is Andrzej Rodan – an author of scandalous novels published in the late1980s and an avowed atheist. They travel together through Poland, which brings back a lot of memories but above all becomes an opportunity for them to engage in spectacular confrontations. The neophyte’s fervour will be put to a test by the unapologetic, sharp-tongued anticlerical.
