The LET’S CEE Film Festival is paused, but we remain active! As CEE FILMS, we have recently brought Simon Wieland's newest documentary to the cinema.

The documentary MAUTHAUSEN – TWO LIVES (Austria 2020) tells the story of two people who were in the Mauthausen Concentration Camp during the Nazi regime – Stanisław Leszczyński, born in Łódź, was there as a prisoner, while Franz Hackl, from Mauthausen, worked there as an apprentice. Two fates that could not have been more contrary - and yet they have so many disturbing things in common. The result is a strong and very moving documentary about humane and also, above all, inhumane behavior in the face of crime.

Holocaust Remembrance Day

MAUTHAUSEN – TWO LIVES premiered in October 2020 at the Jewish Film Festival in Vienna. Within barely two weeks over 1,000 viewers already wanted to see the production on the big screen. Now the film is being shown via video-on-demand, to Austrian youngsters as well as to interested viewers in Austria and abroad. >>>
