Director Pawel Pawlikowski in person for Q&A!
Shot in intimate black and white, Pawel Pawlikowski’s latest film explores the life of Anna, an orphan brought up in a convent in Poland. Just before taking her vows, Anna visits her only living relative for the first time and discovers her real name (Ida) and her family history. This startling revelation leads to a probing of secrets from the time of the Nazi occupation of Poland. A stunningly beautiful film by the acclaimed director of Last Resort and My Summer of Love.
