Sedona Film Fest presents ‘June Zero’ premiere July 12-18

Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to announce the Northern Arizona premiere of “June Zero,” screening July 12-18 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

The 1961 trial of Adolf Eichmann, the chief architect of the Holocaust, is revisited in a fascinating and surprising new light by American filmmaker Jake Paltrow.

Based on a true story, “June Zero” is told from the unique perspectives of three different characters: Eichmann's Jewish Moroccan prison guard, an Israeli police investigator who is also a Holocaust survivor, and a precocious and brilliant 13-year-old Libyan immigrant.

Shot on 16mm film, Paltrow's vibrantly textured work brings to life the diverse experiences of her characters, highlighting how the same historical events are often perceived differently by people around the world.
