THE ZONE OF INTEREST, loosely adapted from Martin Amis’ novel of the same name, is the story of Rudolph Höss (The Montclair Film Festival’s 2023 Breakthrough Performer Christian Friedel), the commandant of Auschwitz, and his wife Hedwig (Sandra Hüller) as they look to build a happy life for their family next door to the camp. As the terrible reality of the Holocaust unfolds just beyond the frame, director Jonathan Glazer uses sound design and the meticulously depicted details of daily life to create a sense of ever-present dread. An unwavering examination of complicity and denial, Jonathan Glazer’s THE ZONE OF INTEREST is a story of the past that continues to resonate in today’s world.
Q&A with Breakthrough Performer Christian Friedel follows the screening.
