Win tickets to the D.C. premiere of Polish Oscar contender IDA, part of the Washington Jewish Film Festival’s Spotlight on Polish Cinema.

“It haunted me as much as anything I saw in the past 12 months, and I can’t wait to see it again.” - A.O. SCOTT, The New York Times

SYNOPSIS: Direct from its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, the film seamlessly weaves together two deeply resonant narratives of identity set in Poland in 1962. Eighteen-year-old Anna, a sheltered orphan raised in a convent, is preparing to become a nun when she first meets her only living relative.

Her aunt Wanda, a worldly and cynical Communist Party insider, shocks Anna with the declaration that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation. This revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey to the countryside, to the old family home and into the secrets of a repressed past.

A post-screening discussion will feature Columbia University School of the Arts Film Professor Annette Insdorff.
