The Zone of Interest

The Zone of Interest

“A remarkable film — chilling and profound, meditative and immersive, a movie that holds human darkness up to the light and examines it as if under a microscope.” — Variety

JIFF is privileged to present the Australian premiere Centrepiece Gala screening of The Zone of Interest. Winner of the Grand Prix (Best Director) at the Cannes Film Festival 2023 and described as a masterpiece. It is likely to stand the test of time as one of the most important Holocaust era films.

This provocative and unflinching new drama, follows an Auschwitz commander, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, as they strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the concentration camp.
