Millennium Docs Against Gravity

Antek, 22, grows up in a deeply religious and radical right-wing family in contemporary Poland. Catholicism, nationalism, homophobia and celibacy define his world. Over several years, filmmaker Hanka Nobis follows him, his friends and his family with her crew. She sees Antek enjoying his growing power in the Brotherhood, a small group of like-minded young men. But when he falls in love, doubts begin to set in - first about the prohibition of premarital sex, then about his view towards the LGBTQ community and ultimately about the existence of God.
