zone of interest

Jonathan Glazer examines evil through the prism of everyday life for a commandant's family living in the shadow of Auschwitz. 

During World War II, concentration camp commandant, Rudolf Höss (Christian Friedel), and his wife Hedwig (Sandra Hüller), strive to build a dream life for their young family in a house and garden next to the horrors of the 'Final Solution'.

Loosely based on Martin Amis' 2014 novel, this staggering film won the Grand Prix prize at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival and has been nominated for five Academy Awards, including Best Picture. 

Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Under the Skin) directs Christian Friedel, Sandra Hüller, Ralph Herforth, Daniel Holzberg and Sascha Maaz
