1943. Rudolf Höss (Christian Friedel, Babylon Berlin) enjoys a grand life of luxury with his wife Hedwig (Sandra Hüller, Anatomy of a Fall) and their children – on the peripheries of Auschwitz concentration camp. Living in sickeningly willful ignorance to the atrocities committed just beyond their doorstep, Hedwig gladly receives the clothes of the victims of Auschwitz, whilst the family enjoy the garden space in view of the bellowing smoke towers just over the wall. Ascending the Nazi chain of command, from Commandant of Auschwitz to deputy inspector in Berlin, Rudolf becomes a key player in horrifying world history.

A breathtaking masterpiece which holds its power in what is left unseen, The Zone of Interest surveys the devastation of the Holocaust from across the walls of Auschwitz. Jonathan Glazer’s magnum opus is a masterclass in formal restraint; an emotionally harrowing testament to complicity aided by an utterly haunting soundscape created by Under the Skin composer collaborator Mica Levi.
