In Darkness: Ticket Contest

By YouNxt

Directed by Filmmaker Agnieszka Holland and nominated in the “Best Foreign Language Film” Academy Awards category, In Darkness, is a Polish/German/Canadian co-production that tells the true story of Leopold Socha, a sewer worker and petty thief who stumbles upon a group of Jews in the sewers and agrees to hide them for a price. But what starts out as a straightforward business arrangement becomes something unexpected, as they all try to outwit certain death during 14 months of intense danger.

We are excited to announce that we have five pairs of tickets to raffle off to the special preview screening of In Darkness on Thursday, February 9th at 7:30 pm at the Cineplex Odeon Queensway Cinemas (in Etobicoke, ON.), courtesy of the film’s Canadian distributor, Mongrel Media.

For a chance to win, email us at by Tuesday, February 7th 11:59 pm with the answer to the question:

In which city is In Darkness set?

We will draw five winners at random. Good luck!

The film has entered worldwide distribution and will arrive in theaters across the Greater Toronto Area on February 17th. 

Below is our conversation with the acclaimed director, who spoke with us during the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
