Ida – Oscar for Poland?

Challenging for an Oscar

Oscar for Ida?

Appointed by the Polish Minister of Culture and National Heritage, the Polish Oscar Committee has unanimously selected the movie “Ida”, directed by Paweł Pawlikowski as Poland’s Oscar nomination in the “Best Foreign Language Film” category. “We had no doubt that ‘Ida’ has the greatest chance in this competitive category,” emphasised Agnieszka Ordowicz, director of the Polish Film Institute (PISF). “It’s a great movie, which not without reason has gained such appreciation and excellent reviews worldwide. It is also not only a fantastic example of the work of all the people involved in the making of this film, but Polish cinematography in general. The movie received outstanding reviews in the most prestigious American magazines. ‘Ida’ is a highly ranked nominee and is touted for an Academy Award. It arouses the emotions,” said Ordowicz. The Polish Oscar Committee was established on 10 July 2014 by Professor Małgorzata Omilanowska, the Minister of Culture. It includes: Filip Bajon (chairman), Katarzyna Adamik, Jacek Bławut, Michał Komar, Agnieszka Ordowicz, Anda Rottenberg, Janusz Zaorski and Marek Żydowicz. Ida was the committee’s unanimous candidate. “It is good that ‘Ida’ is our nominee this year, not last year,” said the director of PISF.
