Exiled/Izgoy (1991)

A Film from the Artur Brauner Collection at Our Library

Simon Riznik, a Polish Jew, finds shelter in a Ukrainian village at the beginning of the Second World War. When the German Wehrmacht raids the Soviet Union and occupies the village, SS members force him to play a sadistic game: Simon is to race against a horse to save the lives of his family.

The narrative of escape, persecution, and being at the mercy of others also told in other CCC film productions takes a cruel and grotesque turn in this film. And yet Exiled is based on a true story.

Starring Jossi Pollak. Directed by Vladimir Saveljev.
