Vadim Perelman, Belarus, 2020
with Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, Lars Eidinger
Gilles, a young Belgian, is arrested by the SS along with other Jews and taken to a camp in Germany. He escapes execution by swearing that he is not Jewish but Persian - a lie that initially saves him. But then Gilles is assigned an impossible mission: to teach Farsi. Officer Koch, head of the camp kitchen, dreams of opening a restaurant in Iran after the end of the war.
