Polish Film Gets Oscar Nomination

Polish film "In Darkness" (W Ciemnosci) has been nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in this year's edition of the Academy Awards.

The film was directed by Agnieszka Holland, the acclaimed filmmaker who has received Oscar nominations in the past for Angry Harvest (1985) and Europa, Europa (1990).

Set in the Nazi-occupied city of Lwow (now known as Lviv in Ukraine), "In Darkness" tells the gripping story of a Polish sewage working who saves a group of Jews by hiding them beneath the city streets.

The film is up against four other international pictures - Belgium's "Bullhead", Canada's "Monsieur Lazhar", Iran's "A Separation", and Israel's "Footnote".

"In Darkness" is in theatres across Poland now.
