Son of Saul


In the horror of 1944 Auschwitz, a prisoner forced to burn the corpses of his own people finds moral survival upon trying to salvage from the flames the body of a boy he takes for his son.

László Nemes, who also co-wrote the screenplay for Son of Saul, is an award-winning director from Budapest. He moved to Paris at age 12 and studied History, International Relations and Political Sciences. Upon graduating, he began working as an assistant director on short films. He does not have a film degree, having opted to leave his Film School program after one year.
