After war, the young totalitarian authority was afraid of Jesuits that had good connections all over the world, even in the countries, Slovenian political immigrants fled to. They were accused of hostile activities, put to a framed-up trial and their spiritual home and church at the Zrinjskega Street in Ljubljana was taken from them. Who could possibly need a huge, cold, consecrated, and non-acoustic building with disputed proprietorship? They put Lenin’s favourite art into the church – the film. They killed two birds with one stone; filmmakers did not have to build an expensive studio, Jesuits were given a very unpleasant penance, and they showed the Church an example of ideological determination.
