Oscar Award: Pawel Pawlikowski, Ida



The Oxford-educated Polish writer/director Pawel Pawlikowski humbly marvels that his film, Ida, has become a sensation in every country it appears. Success seemed a dim prospect when Pawlikowski embarked on this project to make a black-and-white portrait of his homeland. Set in communist run Poland in the 1960s, the plot follows an orphan about to take her final vows as a Catholic nun, when she discovers she is actually Jewish. Pawlikowski discusses details, casting and the little miracles of filming that make his film an instant classic.
