Kreuzweg_(poster)Maria (Lea van Acken), is a 14-year-old Catholic girl in a religiously fanatic family who has dedicated her life to serving God. She is preparing with a group of young people for confirmation in a southern German town. Their church belongs to the Society of St Paul that rejects the more secular rulings of the Second Vatican Council, and holds to the Latin mass. Learning of the 14 Stations of the Cross that Jesus endured on his path to Golgotha, she thinks that this is what she also must go through in order to reach Heaven, and potentially cure her younger brother’s autism.

Kreuzweg is a 2014 German drama film directed by Dietrich Brüggemann. The film had its premiere in the competition section of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival, where it won the Silver Bear for Best Script.

Film in German with subtitles in English.
