Saul fia / Son of Saul
Pearls

Winner of the Jury Grand Prix at the Cannes Festival, this debut by Hungarian moviemaker László Nemes is set in Auschwitz, 1944. Saul Auslander is a Hungarian prisoner assigned to one of the Auschwitz crematorium ovens. He tries to save the body of a young boy he believes to be his son from the flames.

BIOGRAPHY

László Nemes (Budapest, 1977) was an assistant to Béla Tarr on the prologue of the anthology film Visions of Europe (2004) and A londoni férfi (The Man from London, 2007). He subsequently directed the short films Türelem, which screened at the Venice Festival in 2007 and was nominated for the European Film Awards in 2008, The Counterpart (2008) and The Gentleman Takes His Leave (2010).
