Son of Saul


Special 35mm preview of this year’s Foreign Language Oscar Winner.

Sunday 10 April (19.30)

Running time: 2h (includes short film)

Winner of Best Foreign Language Film at this year’s Oscars, László Nemes’ astonishingly assured debut feature breaks from traditional depictions of the Holocaust in cinema. Saul Ausländer, a prisoner of Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1944, is tasked with burning the corpses of his own people. However, when he finds the body of a boy he believes to be his son, he tries to save the remains in order to give the child a proper Jewish burial. A devastating portrait of life in a concentration camp, Nemes eschews the wider historical narrative in favour of maintaining a close-up, subjective portrayal of a single man’s experiences.

This is a special preview on 35mm, and will be preceded by László Nemes’ breakthrough short film With a Little Patience (Hungary 2007, 14m).
