Read an exclusive interview with Polish filmmaker Słavomir Batyra, director of THE GREAT THEATRE. He will guide you through the recesses of his short film just like his film guides the viewers through the recesses of the largest opera house in the world. Would you like some opera tickets or rather cinema ones? What about taking both?

In the small town of Pruchnik, near the remote Bieszczady Mountains in the south-eastern part of Poland, villagers gather every year on Good Friday to "punish" Judas for his betrayal of Jesus. The film explores the thin line between pagan and Christian rites and raises the timely question to what extent anti-semitism finds loopholes in the Roman Catholic tradition.
