*STUDENTS WITH VALID ID CAN ATTEND THIS FILM FOR FREE! TICKETS MUST BE REGISTERED IN PERSON WITH ID.
This wildly audacious, genre-bending film from Germany tells the tale of Toto (Lars Eidinger), an anxiety-ridden, misanthropic German Holocaust researcher, and his equally erratic French intern, Zazie (two-time César winner Adèle Haenel). Following a period of initial bickering and misplaced sexual tension, Toto and Zazie inadvertently come to an understanding and exchange family legacies. Although they are two generations removed from the atrocities committed during the Shoah, both Toto and Zazie still struggle with the fallout. Will learning the truth set them free from their self-imposed shackles?
