Son Of Saul – 35mm Tour

PH-Recommends-logoA 35mm print of László Nemes’s acclaimed Son Of Saul is currently touring selected Picturehouse Cinemas ahead of its official release on Friday 29 April.

Having premiered at Cannes last year, where it picked up the Grand Prix, the film also won the Oscar for Best Foreign-Language Film last month.

Nemes said of the production: “We wanted to use traditional 35mm film and photochemical processing at every stage. It was the only way to maintain a certain instability in the images, and thus be able to film this world organically. The challenge was to strike an emotional chord in the audience – something that digital doesn’t allow.”

Witnessing this extraordinary film on 35mm promises to live long in the memory. Nemes’s powerful debut, about a Nazi concentration camp inmate seeking a dignified burial for his son, has stunned critics and audiences alike with the timelessness of its message and the bravura conviction of its storytelling.

“An outstanding, excoriating look at evil in Auschwitz.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian ★★★★★
