NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE
Q&A with Professor Antony Polonsky.
Shortlisted for this year’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar and the winner of ten international film festival awards, including the Silver Lion for Best Director at the Venice Film Festival, and the Founder’s Award at the Chicago int’l Film Festival. Director and co-screenwriter Andrei Konchalovsky, one of Russian’s most renowned filmmakers, offers a bold, unflinching look on the Holocaust, shot in luminous black and white. Classically staged, but daring in its technical and narrative choices, the film tells the interwoven stories of several characters, including Olga a Russian woman living in Paris working for the resistance, Jules a French police chief and Nazi collaborator, and Helmut, a young aristocratic SS officer.
