When WINTER HUNT’s steely young protagonist, Lena (Carolyn Genzkow), repeatedly shouts “October, 1944” in prompting the frail, 91-year-old Anselm Rossberg (Michael Degen, Hannah Arendt) to confess his Nazi war crimes, you will feel shivers down your spine.

Both Anselm and his daughter, Maria (Elisabeth Degen, Aimée & Jaguar), deny his alleged involvement in what happened to Lena’s grandmother in Auschwitz – and they stick to their story, even as Lena holds them both at gunpoint, insisting on the truth. While Lena appears a cool and composed assassin, Anselm appears, at best, a befuddled old man, while his daughter is his meek devotee. However, it soon becomes clear that no one is who they seem as the three engage in a delicate dance of manipulation, doubt, and blame. As the evening lingers on, Lena, Anselm, and Maria’s morals and convictions are tested in this taut psychological thriller exploring a generational legacy of violence, truth in memory, and the fine line between the hunter and the hunted.

Anchored by powerhouse performances, WINTER HUNT is filled with shocking revelations that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
