1x90’ / Original title: LE METIS DE DIEU


This powerful fictional film is based on the true-life story of Jean-Marie Lustiger (1926-2007), who, born of Polish Jews, converted very early to Catholic priesthood and was appointed Archbishop of Paris.

There, he openly celebrated his dual identity as a « Catholic Jew, » bringing him friends and enemies from both religions. Lustiger’s split allegiance is tested to the core when an event obliged him to choose his side: in 1985, a Carmelites’ convent settles down in the cursed walls of Auschwitz, starting the most serious tear between Jews and Christians since the Second World War

Where will Lustiger stand?
