The Man Who Saw Too Much

January 15, 2020

The Man Who Saw Too Much – the story of Slovenian writer Boris Pahor – at 106 years old, the oldest known survivor of the Nazi concentration camps.

‘ Powerful story ..his extraordinary testimony is paired with shots of his fellow prisoners’ drawings in this harrowing film‘ The Guardian

‘A moving record’ Irish Times

‘A graceful attempt to itemise the totality of the Holocaust by viewing it through an especially enlightening lens…

As much the study of a writer as it is of a prisoner…

The tapered and focussed view taken in The Man Who Saw Too Much is a rewarding shift from the more bombastic, broad-view Holocaust documentaries that tend to dominate the TV market.’ The Arts Desk
