“Spare, haunting, uncompromising, Ida is a film of exceptional artistry whose emotions are as potent and persuasive as its images are indelibly beautiful,” Los Angeles Times’ film critic, Kenneth Turan.

Winner of multiple international awards, including Best Film at the London Film Festival last year, the International Critics’ Award at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival, the Ecumenical Jury Award at the Warsaw International Film Festival, the Lipscomb Ecumenical Prize at the Nashville Film Festival, and the Spotlight Award at the American Society of Cinematographers. Director Pawel Pawlikowski goes back to his home of Poland, to capture some of the most controversial issues in his native homeland.

Ida follows a young woman, Anna, played by Agata Trezbuchowska, who is learning of her families secretive past. This film will capture people’s emotions with very personal, intimate, and human moments throughout. The combination of personal moments with important historical events will make Ida one of the most emotionally powerful films of the year.
