Les héritiers (2014)
Courtesy of IFCinéma in conjunction with Alliance Française Auckland we present a season of French films on Saturday afternoons throughout April.
A powerful and inspirational drama based on a true story. The lives of a group of troubled inner city students are changed forever when their history teacher enters them in a high school competition on the theme of what it meant to be a teen in a Nazi concentration camp. Though the project is first met with resistance, the students begin to open up to each other as they delve into the subject and ultimately learn to believe in themselves and their ability.
