Pawel Pawlikowski’s critics-lauded movie “Ida”, a Polish drama exploring the complicated issue of Polish-Jewish relations in postwar Poland, has won Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, which is the first Oscar for a Polish film in this category.

Pawel Pawlikowski’s critics-lauded movie “Ida”, a Polish drama exploring the complicated issue of Polish-Jewish relations in postwar Poland, has won Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, which is the first Oscar for a Polish film in this category.
“Ida” is an intimate, black-and-white drama with a Jewish theme set in postwar Poland. It tells a story of an 18-year-old novice nun Anna and her aunt Wanda, a former state prosecutor, who set out on a road trip to discover their family’s past.
“We make a film about silence and withdrawing from the world and the need for contemplation – and here we are, at the epicentre of world noise and attention. Fantastic – life is full of surprises.” Pawlikowski said accepting the award.
The Pawlikowski movie has so far garnered over 60 awards at film festivals around the world including the British Academy of Film and Television Arts award (BAFTA) and has become the most internationally popular Polish movie in the last 25 years.
Poland had won five nominations for the 87th Academy Awards, including another one for ‘Ida’ for Best Cinematography by Lukasz Zal and Ryszard Lenczewski.
Another two Polish films short-listed for Oscars were “Nasza klatwa” (Our Curse) by Tomasz Sliwinski and “Joanna” by Aneta Kopacz. They were both nominated for best documentary short subject.
Also, Polish costume designer Anna Biedrzycka-Sheppard competed for best costume design, for her work on Robert Stromberg's film “Maleficent”.
The 87th annual Academy Awards ceremony was held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California, USA, February 22.
