Shot using super 16mm film, Jake Paltrow’s thought-provoking drama captures a moment that dramatically changed the way the Holocaust is understood and remembered. Inspired by true events, June Zero is set in 1962 Israel, where, after a public trial, Adolf Eichmann has been tried and sentenced to death for crimes against humanity. The film explores the experiences of three characters involved in this event: David, a 13-year-old Libyan immigrant, who works at the factory where Eichmann’s corpse was incinerated; Hayim, a Moroccan guard assigned to Eichmann’s jail cell to protect him from vigilante justice; and Micha, a Polish survivor of Auschwitz who became the chief interrogator at the trial.
JAKE PALTROW directed several TV shows including Boardwalk Empire and co-directed the documentary De Palma with Noah Baumbach. His films have screened at Sundance, Venice, New York, Karlovy Vary, etc.
