Houston Jewish Film Festival: June Zero
Sunday, March 24 | 7:00 PM
Drama | Directed by Jake Paltrow
2022 | Israel | Hebrew, with English subtitles | 105 Min. | Kaplan Theatre
American filmmaker Jake Paltrow revisits the 1962 trial of Adolf Eichmann with a gripping Hebrew-language historical drama centered on three Israeli characters on the periphery of Eichmann’s last days: a precocious Libyan immigrant boy, a Moroccan prison guard and a Polish Holocaust survivor working for the prosecution. With Eichmann relegated to the background, the trio’s seemingly ordinary lives become intertwined in the extraordinary, seminal moment. Warmly saturated 16mm filming gives a rich, antique texture to all three storylines.
