Katarzyna Kozyra’s last project, the starting point of which was the interest in the so-called Jerusalem syndrome. Suffering from this ailment, people visiting the Holy Land identify themselves with biblical figures, most often with the Messiah. The film is based on the artist’s recording of her trip to Jerusalem, during which she talks to those who believe that they are Jesus at the beginning of the 21st century.
The first trip took place in 2012. The effect of the trips are hundreds of hours of recorded interviews, photos of the city which is the scene of religious rituals. Kozyra talks with fascinating personalities. Their stories are put together to create a project that speaks of a different approach to faith, its place and role in today’s world and the values around which we build our lives.
The film will be followed by a discussion with experts from SENS psychology for you and the University of Social Sciences and Humanities. The meeting will be hosted by Martyna Harland, the author of the program “Filmoterapia.pl”.
