Cork Cine Club presents Lore (Germany, 2012), a deeply affecting study of a rarely seen legacy of the Holocaust, in St. John’s Central College, Sawmill Street, Cork City on Thursday 10 October at 8pm.
After her staunch Nazi parents are imprisoned, 14-year-old Lore and her four younger siblings are left to fend for themselves at the end of World War II. She leads them on a harrowing journey across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north.
Amidst the chaos, Lore encounters a mysterious Jewish refugee, who shatters her fragile reality. To survive, she must trust someone she was taught to hate and face the darkness within herself as well as the reality and consequences of her parents’ actions.
Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact. Based on the Booker nominated book by Rachel Seiffert.
