Wakolda/The German Doctor


Wakolda / The German Doctor
Directed by Lucia Puenzo
93mins / Argentina, France, Norway, Spain / Spanish, German, Hebrew with English subtitles / 2013

Lucia Puenzo’s striking Wakolda premiered in Cannes ‘Un Certain Regard, 2013′, and was immediately snapped up by the Toronto International Film Festival.
A deeply atmospheric and eerily gripping thriller, set in the stunning landscape of the Patagonian hills in the 1960s, about an innocent family who unknowingly welcomes a Nazi war criminal into their home.
When Nazi-hunting news reports start showing up on the TV, locals start sensing that something is wrong, and that the family is in danger.




This screening is part of the The 15th Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival, for more information, please visit http://asiasociety.org/hong-kong/15th-hong-kong-jewish-film-festival
