Acclaimed UK-based filmmaker Pavel Pawlikowski (My Summer of Love) returns to his native Poland for the first time in his career to direct this profoundly moving and intimate drama, beautifully filmed in shimmering black-and-white. In 1960s Poland, 18-year-old Anna (stunning newcomer Agata Trzebuchowska), a sheltered orphan raised in a convent, is preparing to take her vows when the Mother Superior insists she first visit her only living relative. Soon, naïve Anna finds herself in the presence of her aunt Wanda (Agata Kulesza), a worldly and cynical Communist insider, who shocks her with the news that her real name is Ida and that her Jewish parents were killed during the Nazi occupation. This revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into the countryside and the secrets of a repressed past. In Polish with English subtitles. Director: Pawel Pawlikowski. (Poland 2013) 80 min.
