Those Who Remained


Saturday, March 21 & Sunday, March 22 at 10 am


Reluctantly living with her great-aunt, 16-year old Klara hopes that her father and mother will eventually return. Aldo, her doctor, is a concentration camp survivor who has lost his entire family. Soon the rebellious girl and the wounded doctor find something in each other that has long been absent in their lives—the tissue of family. THOSE WHO REMAINED is the Hungarian submission for the Best International Feature Film Oscar. According to director Barnabás Tóth: “This film is, first of all, a hymn, an ode to a man who is totally wrecked but pulls himself together for one last time to save another half-destroyed soul. We’ve seen so many films about what happened before and during the Holocaust, but so few have shown us the fate of those who remained with us, those who came back.” Running time: 83 minutes.

Screened as part of our winter film series, Cinema Explorations, in conjunction with the Maine Jewish Film Festival.
