A split-second decision at a traffic accident triggers repercussions for a Jewish surgeon and a neo-Nazi’s daughter in Thou Shalt Not Hate (2021, 96 minutes, Italian with English subtitles), a gripping new drama.

Simone, a Holocaust survivor’s son, rushes to the scene of a hit-and-run. But when he sees a swastika tattoo on the victim’s chest, he leaves the gravely wounded man to his fate. Wracked with guilt, the anguished doctor confronts the ethics of his choice, and bonds with the victim’s daughter, embroiling himself in greater conflict. Posing profound questions about redemption and the paradoxes of the human soul in the face of hate, this provocative parable was winner of the Best Italian Film and Best Actor awards at the Venice International Film Festival.

The film will be screened in person in the Museum’s Edmond J. Safra Hall. Tickets are $5 each for Museum members or $10 each for the general public. If you’re not a member, join today. If you’re already a member, log in and the member discount will be reflected in your cart.
