LORE at E Street Cinema in D.C. Starts this Friday, March 8
Left to fend for themselves, after their SS officer father and mother, staunch Nazi believers, are interred by the victorious Allies at the end of WWII, five German children undertake a harrowing journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions.
Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year-old Lore (Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a journey across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic Thomas, a mysterious young refugee, Lore soon finds her world shattered by feelings of both hated and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive.
Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.
Based on the book "Lore" by Rachel Seiffert.
