Sarah’s Key (2010) 111 mins
Directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner
A moving feature film exploring the intricacies of human memory and traumatic history. A journalist in present-day Paris finds her life becoming deeply entwined with a young girl whose family was torn apart during the notorious Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup in 1942.
Based on Tatiana de Rosnay’s novel of the same name, Sarah’s Key is a tale of inner conflict and the role of intergenerational memory in coming of terms with the Holocaust.
