Come along to the brand-new National Library Auditorium on Thursday 29 November to enjoy a free screening of François Ozon’s critically acclaimed film Frantz, as seen at the 2017 New Zealand International Film Festival.

It is often said that it is the victors who get to write history, which rings true for most conflicts that have occurred in human history and the First World War is no exception. This beautifully presented French/German language film shows the “other side” of the aftermath of the Great War, following the grieving widow of a German soldier and her journey to forgiveness and healing.

This film is shown in conjunction with the current Turnbull Gallery exhibition Goodbye to All That: Armistice 1918, which shows that despite the armistice being signed at 11am on 11/11/1918, the war did not cease at this time for those affected by the trauma such an unprecedented conflict inflicted.

Starring Pierre Niney, Paula Beer, Anton von Lucke, and Ernst Stötzner, Frantz highlights that the aftermath of war effects both “sides” of the conflict, and brings humanity to what is often portrayed as a faceless enemy.

Please note the film has a classification rating of PG-13. Parental Guidence is recommended.
