Movie 1: The Occupant
Movie 2: The Angel
Based on the New York Times bestselling book ‘The Angel: The Egyptian Spy Who Saved Israel’ by Uri Bar-Joseph. True stories make great films. This one is a reminder of recent history when Middle Eastern conflicts ultimately involved much of the Western world. It’s intense, focused on fresh perspectives and riveting to watch. (Netflix)
Movie 3: The Photographer of Mauthausen
And another Netflix release making this a great film week for us. This film is set in 1943 in the Austrian concentration camp of Mauthausen where Spain’s anti-Franco prisoners were under the control of Germany’s war machine. It’s horrific but a compelling story that should be required viewing. Spanish with English subtitles.
