Directed by:

"Ida" is a strong and complex drama of a young girl brought up at a convent who undertakes a strange journey to find her true identity in the hard times of postwar communist Poland. This subtle and elliptic film, shot in an ambitious black and white cinematographic style, raises questions of family ties, forgiveness and mature faith.

The Warsaw Grand Prix, the main prize of the International Competition, funded by the City of Warsaw, has also been awarded to "Ida".
