In a virtuoso solo performance, Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn (Nomadland, Good Night and Good Luck, Lincoln) portrays Jan Karski in this genre-defying true story of a reluctant World War II hero and Holocaust witness.
Karski endured unspeakable mental anguish and physical torture to stand tall in the halls of power and speak the truth. Strathairn captures the complexity and legacy of this self-described “insignificant, little man” whose timely story of moral courage and individual responsibility can still shake the conscience of the world.
The film takes a bold, elegant and expressionistic approach to cinematically transform the original stage play on which Remember This is based and to provide an intensity and intimate theatricality rarely experienced on screen.
Filmed in the shooting style of a continuous shot, the audience is drawn into Karski’s world and memories, and invited to experience the journey along with him as though Jan Karski is speaking directly to all of us across time, space and history.
