Dispassionately examining the ordinary existence of people complicit in horrific crimes, The Zone of Interest forces us to take a cold look at the mundanity behind an unforgivable brutality. The commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp. Winner of two Oscars – International  Feature Film and Sound.

“The Zone of Interest is a damning indictment of silent complicity of the complacent masses.”

The director, “Glazer raises the question of how much suffering we are all willing to ignore, just because it’s happening in another part of the world, or just outside our homes, or beyond our own zone of interest.”

“A landmark movie, hugely important, that’s unafraid of difficult ideas.”
