“The Interpreter” by Martin Šulík
(Slovak Republic, Czech Republic, Austria, 2018)

Oscillating between comedy and tragedy, Martin Šulík’s road movie focuses on two old men, weighed down by the unresolved conflicts that have plagued their lives, who are now trying to free themselves from this oppressive burden. For the two men, it’s a bittersweet road trip during which they discover deep unresolved conflicts that surface in new forms.

Introduced by Trudis Goldsmith-Reber, Co-chair, JPL English programming committee.

Starring Peter Simonischek (Toni Erdmann) and Jirí Menzel (Academy Award Winner, Closely Watched Trains).

In collaboration with the Montreal Holocaust Museum.
