Assaf Machnes, Met Film School BA (Hons) Filmmaking graduate is celebrating festival success this month with a screening of his short graduate film Auschwitz on my mind at this year’s BFI London Film Festival.
Auschwitz on my mind is Assaf’s first film to screen in this influential festival, after an inclusion in Met Film School’s 10th anniversary showcase in June this year . It tells the beguiling and bittersweet story of an Israeli teenager on a school trip who tries to win the affection of a classmate while they travel between Holocaust memorials and death camps.
Screening as part of the ‘Love Will Conquer All’ series of shorts, Assaf’s film will be shown alongside The Phone Call, starring Sally Hawkins and Jim Broadbent and Manjinder Virk’s Out of Darkness. The series is made up of eight short films examining an assortment of expressions of affection, from first love to unrequited love to unconditional love. Tickets are available via the BFI website.
