Son of Saul, directed by Laszlo Nemes

Winner of the 2016 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Son of Saul follows a Hungarian Jewish prisoner (Gez Rohig) in Auschwitz who works as a Sonderkommando, participating as a cog in the Nazis’ extermination machine. In a haunting exploration of the struggle to maintain one’s humanity in the midst of so much killing, Saul is determined to give the body of a young boy a proper Jewish burial.

Amy Simon (William and Audrey Farber Chair in Holocaust Studies, MSU) and Ken Walzer (History Professor Emeritus, MSU) will introduce the film, provide comments at the conclusion, and then lead a discussion about the film.

Presented by Yelena Kalinsky

Andrei Tarkovsky’s 1979 sci-fi masterpiece, based loosely on the Strugatsky brothers’ novel Roadside Picnic, takes place in a dystopian world where a mysterious Zone is sealed off by the government and is said to grant one’s deepest unconscious wish. Unable to resist the Zone’s pull, the Stalker of the title leads a washed-up writer and a cynical scientist on a spiritual and philosophical quest to the heart of the Zone. The illusion of continuous action through the constantly shifting landscape and strange, nondiegetic sound cast a seductive spell while ultimately frustrating any single interpretation.

Free and open to the public.
