Thou Shalt Not Hate

Simone Segre is a surgeon and the son of a Holocaust survivor. His past haunts him when he refuses to help a victim of a car accident who has a swastika tattoo on his chest. He tries to alleviate his guilt and seeks the victim’s relatives. The film was shot in autumn 2019 and is the only Italian film to compete in the 35th edition of the Venice Film Festival’s International Week of Critics. The story was inspired by a true story that happened in Germany. It was also the first film to be shot in the Synagogue of Trieste, the second largest in Europe after the one in Budapest. During the Second World War it was stolen by the Nazis and used as a warehouse, but thanks to a hiding place, the ritual silver was saved. You can also feel the multi-religious and cosmopolitan soul of Trieste in other places that are dear to the Jewish community: from the ritual bath to the cemetery, from the streets of the ghetto and the rich palaces of the 19th century to the sad symbol of the Nazi-fascists Persecution, the Risiera of San Sabba.
