Wakolda (Film Screening)
Acclaimed writer-director Lucia Puenzo adapted her own book to make this taut thriller about the hidden identity of the ‘German Doctor’.
When a scientist befriends an Argentine family, and in particular their daughter Lilith, they have no idea that they are striking up a friendship with one of the world’s most terrifying war criminals.
As he starts to penetrate their everyday life and offer growth hormone therapy to Lilith, the father of the family starts to become suspicious of this seemingly charming man.
