DIRECTOR: Pawel Pawlikowski - POLAND

Orphaned during World War II and raised in a rural convent, Anna is about to take her own vows. But before becoming a nun, the mother superior insists she visit her last remaining relative. Aunt Wanda, Anna discovers, is a worldly intellectual—an embittered ex-judge in Warsaw—and a woman who deals with her painful memories with liberal doses of sex and drink. An offhand revelation about Anna’s true identity sets in motion a road trip through the Polish countryside during which these two strikingly different women confront devastating family secrets and postwar demons. One of the most internationally acclaimed films of the year, Ida’s exquisite black-and-white images, superb performances, and haunting script combine to fashion a poetic meditation on identity and the limits of faith. (80 mins.)

Filmography: The Stringer (98), Last Resort (00), My Summer of Love (04), The Woman in the Fifth (11).

Sponsored by the Consulate General of Poland, Los Angeles.
