About the film

The selection criteria for films shown at the Tim Hetherington Film Club at Farm Street is "important films about people that have made a difference".

This month's film is ‘Ida’ - a 2013 foreign language drama, written and directed by Pawel Pawlikoswki. The film was voted Best Film by the European Film Academy in 2014, Best Non-English Film by BAFTA in 2014, and Best Foreign Language Film at the 2015 Academy Awards.

Set in Poland in 1962, it follows a young woman on the verge of taking vows as a Catholic nun. Orphaned as an infant during the German occupation of World War II, she must meet her aunt, a former Communist state prosecutor and only surviving relative, who tells her that her parents were Jewish. The two women embark on a road trip into the Polish countryside to learn the fate of their relatives.

Hailed as a ‘compact masterpiece' and an ‘eerily beautiful road movie, the film has also been said to ‘contain a cosmos of guilt, violence and pain’.
