László Nemes on the Challenges of Creating 'Son of Saul'

Hosted by

László Nemes thought someone in Europe would be on board with his film. But everywhere he went, he got a firm "no." The Hungarian writer and first-time director sat down with KCRW's Matt Holzman to talk about the process of creating Son of Saul, and what the reaction has been since his film won the Grand Prix at Cannes and is now on the short list for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars.
