Inspired by True Events – Poppy Field
Poppy Field is a Romanian drama that is inspired by true events in Eastern Europe, but the story could have happened here in the US.
The story is poignant and offers perspective as we see what happens when people aren’t safe or free to live authentically.
Unfortunately, extremists cause deep harm that impacts marginalized people without any easy solutions.
This film is intense and thought provoking and will, hopefully, add new layers to viewers’ understanding of the issues caused by hate.
Release Date 7/12/22
Planning to spend a romantic weekend with his long-distance boyfriend, Christi’s tender reunion is cut short when he is called in to handle a crisis at work.
Christi is a member of the Bucharest police force, and his unit is sent to quell a protest at a local movie theater, where a far-right group has interrupted the screening of a queer film.
As tensions between the homophobic protesters and the audience mount, Christi, closeted to his fellow officers, begins to spiral out of control when he spots a former fling in the crowd.
A violent outburst threatens to expose Christi’s secret and forces him to confront the contradictions between his personal and professional life.
