Ida − polski czarno-biały dramat psychologiczny z 2013 roku, w reżyserii Pawła Pawlikowskiego, który wraz z Rebeką Lenkiewicz napisał scenariusz filmu.

20 grudnia 2014 r., obraz znalazł się na skróconej liście dziewięciu tytułów, które nadal ubiegały się o oficjalną nominację w wyżej wymienionej kategorii, natomiast w czwartek 15 stycznia 2015 roku, film otrzymał jako dziesiąty polski film w historii oficjalną nominację do Oscara w kategorii najlepszy film nieanglojęzyczny. Nominowani zostali również autorzy zdjęć do filmu − Łukasz Żal i Ryszard Lenczewski − w kategorii najlepsze zdjęcia.

 

Polska, lata 60. XX wieku. Młoda sierota Anna, wychowywana była w klasztorze. Zgodnie z życzeniem matki przełożonej Anna przed złożeniem ślubów zakonnych musi odwiedzić jedyną swoją krewną, siostrę matki − Wandę Gruz. Kobieta, stalinowska prokurator i sędzia, najpierw niechętnie poznaje siostrzenicę. Zabiera ją jednak z dworca, i wyjaśnia dziewczynie, iż ta jest Żydówką o imieniu Ida. Obie kobiety udają się w podróż w rodzinne strony dziewczyny, aby dowiedzieć się o losach ich rodziny. Postać Wandy (w jej roli Agata Kulesza) była inspirowana postacią Heleny Wolińskiej-Brus.

 

We invite you to watch that movie together in the library of the Polish Hall on Friday, February 13, 2015 at 7:30pm and on Sunday, February 15, 2015 at 1 pm. The movie has English subtitles.

Ida (pronounced [ida]) is a 2013 Polish drama film directed by Paweł Pawlikowski. The film has been nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film and Best Cinematography at the 87th Academy Awards. It has won prestigious Polish and European industry awards, including Best Film awarded by the Polish Film Academy, and Best Film awarded by the European Film Academy.

 

This is not a joke — and there is nothing funny about the wartime fate of Poland’s Jews, including Ida’s parents — but “Ida” and its characters are alert to the absurdities of Polish history, as well as its abundant horrors. Mr. Pawlikowski, a Polish-born writer and director who has spent most of his career in England, has reached into his country’s past and grabbed hold of a handful of nettles. “Ida” is a breathtakingly concise film — just 80 minutes long — with a clear, simple narrative line. But within its relatively brief duration and its narrow black-and-white frames, the movie somehow contains a cosmos of guilt, violence and pain. Its intimate drama unfolds at the crossroads where the Catholic, Jewish and Communist strains of Poland’s endlessly and bitterly contested national identity intersect.

Igor Lipinski

Described as the "Magician at the Piano" and the "next Victor Borge", Eastman School of Music graduate Igor Lipinski is a concert pianist who enchants audiences with his unique musical talent and sleight-of-hand artistry. As the winner of the WQXR Classical Comedy Contest at Caroline's on Broadway, Lipinski continues to perform his innovative program of music & magic in recital halls and with the symphony orchestras throughout the United States. Teller, of Las Vegas magicians duo Penn & Teller, calls Lipinski an original: “He thrills you on the piano. He mystifies you with magical illusions. And he keeps you laughing with his impudent, charismatic charm.”

Igor Lipinski's "The Secrets of Music" reveals enlightening discoveries behind classical music's masterpieces in the fashion of a highly interactive piano recital. In one of his award-winning showpieces, Lipinski explains the complexity behind Bach’s Fugue with the help of a spectator from the audience and a shuffled deck of cards. In order to describe the process of musical variations, he first plays the excerpts from Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, only to improvise a set of variations on a theme selected by the audience member that leads to a surprising finale. Inspired by 1839 Monologues Pianistiques, Franz Liszt’s first piano recitals, Lipinski announces his repertoire from the stage, involves the audience in his musical conversations and often features a surprising element of innovative magic.

In his second appearance at Portland's Polish Hall, Lipinski will perform an eclectic selection of works by Arvo Pärt, Astor Piazzolla, Igor Stravinsky, J.S. Bach, Sergei Rachmaninov and Frederic Chopin. The concert will also feature special guest artists: ALDancers in preview from "ALLEGRO CON HUMORE" with musical excerpts from Tomas Svoboda's Etudes in Fugue Style.

  •     Arvo Pärt - Fur Alina
  •     Astor Piazzolla - Milonga del Angel
