PR dla Zagranicy
The Museum of Cinematography in Łódz has staged an exhibition documenting the production process of the film and its worldwide popularity.
Pawel Pawlikowski’s ‘Ida’ is one of the biggest success stories in the history of Polish cinema. Over the past year or so, it has won about 70 awards at international festivals and attracted huge audiences, over half a million in France and some 200 thousand in both Spain and Italy.
The film follows the plight of an orphan who was handed over to a nunnery as a child during the Second World War. Just before she takes her vows, her Mother Superior instructs her to visit her sole surviving relative, a disillusioned Stalinist judge, and the mystery of her Jewish past is revealed.
The director of the Museum of Cinematography Marzena Bomanowka speaks to reporter Michał Kubicki.
