The Zone of Interest (ENG SUBS)
Camp commandant Rudolf Höss (Christian Friedel) lives with his family in a beautiful, spacious official residence with a large garden, adjacent to the wall of Auschwitz. His wife Hedwig (Sandra Hüller) feels like a queen. Höss takes the children out to swim and fish, and Hedwig spends much of her time tending the garden. Servants handle chores around the house, while the prisoners’ belongings are given to the family. Beyond the garden wall, gunshots, shouting, and sounds of trains and furnaces are constantly heard.
The Zone of Interest was awarded the Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival and is the UK’s Oscar submission for Best International Film. Director Jonathan Glazer loosely based it on the book of the same name by Martin Amis.
