Origin Stories: Jake Paltrow’s Notes on June Zero

Acclaimed, versatile filmmaker Jake Paltrow (The Young Ones, De Palma) returns to the big screen later this month with June Zero, his vividly textured telling of the preparations for the 1962 execution of Adolf Eichmann through a triptych of perspectives — a Jewish Moroccan prison guard, an Israeli police investigator (and Holocaust survivor), and a clever and precocious 13-year-old Libyan immigrant.

We’ve invited Paltrow to curate a selection of films that informed and influenced June Zero, with titles spanning humanist deep-cuts of world cinema from the likes of Jacques Becker, Miloš Forman, and Abbas Kiarostami to rarely-screened classics of 1970s Israeli cinema.
