A screening of the award winning 2016 film ‘Son of Saul’ as part of Holocaust Memorial Day 2018.
Visitors to the Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre can attend a screening of the award winning 2016 film ‘Son of Saul’ as part of Holocaust Memorial Day 2018.
Winner of the 2016 Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and Golden Globe, ‘Son of Saul’ is Hungarian director László Nemes’ blistering debut feature; a courageous and unflinching re-imagining of the Holocaust drama.
Saul Ausländer is a member of the Sonderkommando, the Jewish prisoners forced to assist in the machinery of the Nazi concentration camps. While at work, he discovers the body of a boy he recognises as his son. As the Sonderkommando plan a rebellion, Saul vows to carry out an impossible task: to save the child's body from the flames and to find a rabbi to recite the mourner’s Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial.
Anchored by a riveting and intensely brave performance from newcomer Géza Röhrig, ‘Son of Saul’ is a remarkable exploration of one of humanity’s darkest moments. Visceral, gripping and immensely powerful, it is one of the boldest and most remarkable debut features in recent memory and is already being heralded as a masterpiece of world cinema.
Please note that ‘Son of Saul’ has been classified as a Certificate 15 film and some scenes may be upsetting for viewers.
