The Oscar-winning film Ida (2013) by Pawel Pawlikowski is one of the few European art house films that are both festival and box-office hits. We talked with two of the film’s producers Ewa Puszczynska (Poland) and Sofie Wanting Hassing (Denmark) about what made this Polish-Danish co-production successful and about the challenges they faced throughout its development, production and distribution. Puszczynska shares her perspective of the majority producer while Hassing focuses on her experience as the co-producer.
