Lewes Film ClubShot largely in tight close-ups and shallow focus, Son of Saul brings the realities of the HOLOCAUST to the screen in a unique and focused manner. Saul is a member of the Sonderkommando unit, a group of prisoners used by the Nazis to assist in the maintenance of the death camps. However, when he finds what he believes to be the body of his son, his sole desire becomes to give him a proper burial and in doing so reclaim his soul. Winner of the Best Foreign Language Film award at the 88th Academy Awards
