Film Talk

With the UK release of Cannes award winner ‘The Zone of Interest’, this talk, illustrated by a range of clips, will explore the careers of film director Jonathan Glazer and writer Martin Amis, including the ways in which each of them has tackled one of the greatest crimes in human history.

In Detail

Jonathan Glazer’s film of Martin Amis’ novel ‘The Zone of Interest’ unites two formidable talents. Glazer forged a reputation as a director of iconic TV commercials before his feature debut ‘Sexy Beast’ in 2000.

Amis’ trademark was a pyrotechnic prose style that he perfected in satirical comedies like ‘Money’ (1984).

Nick Johnston-Jones of the Cinema Education Team, traces the careers of both men, from shared apprenticeships in advertising to the mature landmarks of their later work, and how their unique story-telling visions converged in this project.

It also considers Glazer’s film in the context of the expanding genre of Holocaust fiction and filmmaking.
