Ida comes out with audio description at the Brussels Film Festival

Paweł Pawlikowski's 2014 LUX Prize winner, Ida, will be screened in the Flagey cinema in Brussels for the first time ever with audio description on 12 June, during the Brussels Film Festival.
 
Every screening of Ida could be described as an invitation to reflect on and discuss, together with thousands of Europeans, themes that have become a part of our everyday lives: the situation for immigrants, the difficulty of integration and of establishing human relationships when different cultures are involved, when solidarity and sensitivity prevail over prejudice.
 
Now, and after winning the 2014 LUX Prize – through which the film was subtitled in 24 languages and screened in over 60 cities across 28 countries – Ida has also been adapted for visually and hearing-impaired in French. The Brussels Film Festival, which will celebrate European cinema from 5 to 12 June, will host the first screening of this version, in partnership with the European Parliament and the LUX Prize itself.
 
The Brussels Film Festival is also celebrating LUX Prize-selected talent on its own, newly launched VoD site, in association with Belgian VoD site Universciné. The page (which you can visit here) includes previous LUX Prize-selected films such as Claire Denis’ 35 Rhums, Cristian Nemescu’s California Dreamin’, Fatih Akin’s The Edge of Heaven, Kornél Mundruczó’s Delta, Peter Strickland’s Katalin Varga, Luca Guadagnino’s I Am Love and Olivier Masset-Depasse’s Illegal, as well as previous LUX Prize winners Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne’s The Silence of Lorna, Robert Guédiguian’s The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Philippe Lioret’s Welcome. Moreover, Belgian filmmaker Olivier Masset-Depasse will be a member of the official competition jury, which will hand out the Golden Iris Award.
