Son of Saul on Saturday July 9 at 7.30pm.

This Hungarian drama won awards from the Grand Prix at Cannes to the Best Foreign Film Oscar. Saul is a Sonderkommando at Auschwitz, one of the inmates made to clean the gas chambers, dispose of the bodies, and salvage belongings from the corpses. He is stoic until one day he sees a body he thinks is his illegitimate son, and becomes determined that the boy should have a proper burial. He tries to arrange this over two days, becoming involved in efforts to smuggle out photographs, start an uprising, and escape. The film stays closely focused on Saul throughout: this is no schmaltzy tale with a happy ending, but an audacious and stunning debut film with a relentless central performance backed by extraordinary cinematography and sound work. (1hr 47 mins, 15, subtitled)
