The 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann, architect of the mass murder of the Jews during World War II, is revisited in a gripping and surprising new vision from American filmmaker Jake Paltrow (“De Palma,” “The Good Night”). This Hebrew-language fiction drama tells its story from the intertwined perspectives of three largely unrelated figures connected to the trial: Eichmann’s Jewish Moroccan personal prison guard; a 13-year-old Jewish Libyan immigrant tapped for a top-secret assignment; and an Israeli police officer and Holocaust survivor working for Bureau 06, the special unit formed to investigate Eichmann. The latter character is based on Michael Goldman-Gilad, personal aide to Gideon Hausner, head of the prosecution.
Shot largely on 16mm film, which gives the film an authentic early-1960s feel, Paltrow’s moving and vividly textured work uses these disparate but cohesive points of view to explore anew one of the benchmark events in Jewish and Israeli history. Winner of the best film jury prize at the 2023 Atlanta Jewish Film Festival.
Director: Jake Paltrow, Israel/USA, 2022, 105 minutes, Hebrew with English subtitles.
