Euronews speaks to Laszlo Nemes, the director of award-winning movie ‘Son of Saul’, at the European film festival of Les Arcs where he is member of this year’s jury.

The young Hungarian film-maker shot to international fame in 2015 when his debut feature picked up the runner-up Grand Prix at the Cannes Film Festival. It went on to win an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film the following year.

Widely seen as a landmark film, ‘Son of Saul’ portrays the desperate attempt of a member of the Sonderkommando, the concentration camp inmates who were forced to help the Nazis with the disposal of gas chamber victims, to bury the body of a child he believes is his son.
