“The Zone of Interest” is the winner of two Academy Awards: Best International Feature Film and Best Sound. It was also nominated for three additional Oscars including Best Motion Picture of the Year, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Director for Jonathan Glazer.

“The Zone of Interest” is an historical drama film written and directed by Jonathan Glazer, co-produced between the United Kingdom and Poland.

Loosely based on the 2014 novel by Martin Amis, the film focuses on the life of Auschwitz commandant Rudolf Höss and his wife Hedwig, who live with their family in a home in the "Zone of Interest" next to the concentration camp. There, they strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp.

Christian Friedel stars as Rudolf Höss alongside Sandra Hüller as Hedwig Höss.
