A haunting adaptation of famed author Marguerite Duras’s semi-autobiographical novel.

It’s 1944 in Nazi-occupied France and Marguerite Duras (Mélanie Thierry) and her husband Robert Antelme are active in the Resistance. When Antelme is deported to Dachau by the Gestapo, Marguerite becomes friendly with French Nazi collaborator Rabier (Benoît Magimel) in her attempts to learn of her husband’s whereabouts. But as the months wear on with no news of her husband, she must begin the process of confronting the unimaginable.

Q&A following the screening with:
Director Emmanuel Finkiel and
Mélanie Thierry.
