The Zone of Interest: A screening with Jonathan Glazer and A24
January 15 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Wiener Holocaust Library and A24 present a screening of The Zone of Interest. Directed by one of the Library’s valued trustees, the evening will also feature remarks from the film’s creator Jonathan Glazer, and an introduction from the Director of the Library Dr Toby Simpson.
The Zone of Interest centres on Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Hoss and his wife as they strive to build a dream life next to the concentration camp, and is loosely based on the Martin Amis novel of the same name.
The Zone of Interest premiered at the 76th Cannes Film Festival on 19 May 2023 to critical acclaim, winning both the Grand Prix and FIPRESCI Prize. It went on to be named Best Film by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, selected as one of the top-five international films of 2023 by the National Board of Review, and chosen as the British entry for the Best International Feature Film at the 96th Academy Awards.
The screening will take place at the Curzon Cinema, Soho.Book now
