RSVP

Diamonds of the Night
Director: Jan Němec, 1964, 63 min, Czechoslovakia

APRIL 27, 7PM in the Cinema

The remarkable debut by the then 27-year-old director is a bleak, alternately realistic and hallucinatory examination of four desperate days in the lives of two young escapees from the Nazis. In commemoration of Holocaust Rememberance Day.

Article - Off the Blacklist: The Films of Jan Němec 

Diamonds in the night is the tense, brutal story of two Jewish boys who escape from a train transporting them from one concentration camp to another. Ultimately, they are hunted down by a group of old, armed home-guardists. The film goes beyond the themes of war and anti-Nazism and concerns itself with man's struggle to preserve human dignity. –IMDB
