Personal Quote:

Let's be honest: Ida (2013) had no commercial prospects, even in festivals, because I know how hard it is for Polish films to break into Cannes, Venice and Berlin. When I said that I was doing the film in Poland - in Polish and in black and white - my friends decided that I was committing professional hara-kiri. [2015] See more »

Trivia:

His paternal grandmother was Polish-Jewish and died in Auschwitz. Pawel learned about it from his father as a grown-up. This must have been a shocking news for him as he had been baptised and raised Catholic by his deeply religious mother. See more »
