Event Originally produced by Music Box Films in 2016.
Summary Warsaw, December 1945: the second World War is finally over and French Red Cross doctor Mathilde is treating the last of the French survivors of the German camps. When a panicked nun appears at the clinic begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent, what she finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth and several more in advanced stages of pregnancy. A non-believer, Mathilde enters the sisters’ fiercely private world, dictated by the rituals of their order and the strict Rev. Mother. Fearing the shame of exposure, the hostility of the occupying Soviet troops and local Polish communists and while facing an unprecedented crisis of faith, the nuns increasingly turn to Mathilde as their beliefs and traditions clash with harsh realities. Nominated for four **César Awards**, including Best Film. Official Selection at the **Sundance Film Festival**. "*The Innocents is a powerful, brave film that will stay with you for days.*" - Ellen Brait, ***Globe and Mail***
