KHRCA Film Screening: Son of Saul

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016 at 12:10pm.

Taking place over the course of two days, this film follows Saul Auslander, a Hungarian prisoner assigned work as a Sonderkommando at the Auschwitz crematoriums. Forced to work among the corpses of his own people, Saul has been numbed to the daily horror, until he comes across the body of a young boy. Imagining the boy to be his illegitimate son, Saul experiences a spiritual awakening, and seeks to provide
the boy with a proper Jewish burial. Saul attempts the impossible, all while taking part in the preparations for a prisoner rebellion.

Released in 2015, 107 minutes.
