“The most essential moment for me was when I first read the writings of the crematorium workers. These texts are not well-known, but they give an incredible opportunity for the reader to be transported to that present,” the director of the film—about a man in a concentration camp attempting to bury his son—says. “To have that reference helped me talk about things that have never been approached in cinema regarding the experience of individuals in concentration camps.”
