Australian director Cate Shortland brings her distinctive style and flair to the German-language film ‘Lore’ which screens at Nenagh Arts Centre this Thursday.

In south-western Germany during the aftermath of World War II five destitute siblings must travel 900 kilometres to their grandmother’s home near Hamburg after their high-level Nazi parents disappear in the face of certain arrest by the Allied Forces.

Along the way they encounter a variety of other friends and enemies before meeting charismatic Thomas, a young Jewish concentration camp survivor, who joins their group and becomes their protector.

Fifteen-year–old Lore, one of the five children, must try and come to terms with the help being offered from a person from a race she has always been taught to despise.

Everything she has believed is now called into question and she must confront a devastated country and come to terms with both her father’s crimes and a nation’s guilt.

The film screens at 8pm on Thursday, December 12th. Admission is priced at €8.
