Based on Jerzy Kosinski's infamous novel, The Painted Bird is a plunge into the darkest corners of the human soul. Featuring an ensemble cast that includes Harvey Keitel and Stellan Skarsgård, the film tells the story of a Jewish child, who, after being separated from his persecuted parents, wanders Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe during World War II, meeting senseless violence and inhumane torture along the way.
Shot in meticulous 35mm black and white, this harrowing drama offers a memorable indictment of the depths of humanity.
Contains high-impact violence.
