The NB Film Co-Op Celebrates National Canadian Film Day April 20 with a free screening of the film, Remember.

ncfd-bannerThe Monday Night Film Series, in conjunction with National Canadian Film Day, presents a free screening of Remember on April 20 at 7:30pm in Tilley 102.  The film tells the contemporary story of Zev, (Academy Award® Winner Christopher Plummer), who discovers that the Nazi guard who murdered his family some 70 years ago is living in America under an assumed identity.

Master filmmaker Atom Egoyan (Ararat, The Sweet Hereafter) tackles one of the darkest chapters of 20th-century history in this gripping thriller, which gives legendary actor Christopher Plummer (Elsa & Fred, Beginners) a majestic role as an elderly Holocaust survivor seeking revenge on the man responsible for the deaths of his family.

Plummer plays Zev, a recent widower whose deteriorating mental state forces him to be placed under permanent care. When he discovers that the concentration-camp guard who murdered his relatives is now living in America under an assumed identity, Zev resolves to fulfill his final vow to his wife by exacting vengeance on the escaped war criminal.

The NB Film Co-op in partnership with the UNB Faculty of Arts and the Toronto Film Festival presents the series.
