Oscar-winning Ida returns to JW3 for one week only.

From acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski comes Ida, a moving and intimate portrait of a young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland. On the verge of taking her vows, she is directed by the Mother Superior to first meet with her sole living relative. A sheltered and naive orphan raised in a convent, Anna soon meets her Aunt Wanda, a cynical Communist Party insider, who delivers the shocking news that Anna’s real name is Ida, and she is Jewish.
