Eddie Tamir – Jewish International Film Festival



Son of Saul the critically lauded and multi-award winning Hungarian drama, from writer/director László Nemes, has 

been selected as the opening night film for the 2015 Jewish International Film Festival.  Screening courtesy of Sony 

Pictures, this deeply poignant tale, which won the Grand Prix at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and is widely tipped to 

be a major 2016 Oscar contender, follows a father’s quest for moral redemption as he tries to salvage the body of a 

boy whom he believes to be his son, amidst the horrors of 1944 Auschwitz.

And closing the Festival will be the thrilling Sabena Hijacking – My Version, which was nominated for Best 

Documentary at the 2015 Ophir Awards (Israeli Oscars).  Featuring interviews with over 20 participants and a 

moment-by-moment reenactment, this compelling docu-drama revisits the 1972 hijacking of Belgian’s Sabena Flight 

571 by four armed members of the Palestinian Black September terrorist organization and the subsequent storming of 

Between these two enthralling cinematic bookends awaits a feast of 58 superb features and documentaries from a 

programme showcasing 59 Australian premieres from its 60 strong line-up.
