Synopsis

The year is 1980. Michal and Juraj are students at a theological seminary in totalitarian Czechoslovakia. Fearing the dissolution of their school, the tutors are moulding the seminarians into a shape satisfactory to the ruling Communist Party. Each of the young students must decide if he will give into the temptation and choose the easier way of collaborating with the regime, or if he will subject himself to draconian surveillance by the secret police.

 

From director Ivan Ostrochovský, co-written by Rebecca Lenkiewicz (IDA, DISOBEDIENCE, COLETTE), SERVANTS received its world premiere at Berlin Film Festival 2020 in the Encounters competition.
