Dentons has advised Extreme Emotions on Polish production aspects of The Zone of Interest film.

Poland's Extreme Emotions is a film production company and acted as co-producer on the film, which won two Oscars for Best International Feature Film and Best Sound at the 96th Academy Awards.

The Zone of Interest, a Polish-British co-production directed by Jonathan Glazer, "is a gripping historical drama loosely based on Martin Amis’s novel. Set against the backdrop of World War II, the film delves into the lives of a German family residing near the Auschwitz concentration camp. Their mundane existence takes a harrowing turn as they grapple with questions of complicity and morality. The film’s haunting portrayal of life adjacent to the Auschwitz death camp resonated deeply with audiences and critics alike," Dentons reported.

According to the firm, The Zone of Interest was a collaborative effort, co-produced by Two Wolves Films Limited and Extreme Emotions. "It received vital support from the Polish Film Institute. The film’s captivating visuals were captured entirely in Poland by cinematographer Lukasz Zal."

The Dentons team was led by London-based Partner Igor Ostrowski and included Warsaw-based Partner Tomasz Zwolinski, Counsel Stanislaw Dabek, and Senior Associates Lukasz Blaszczak and Katarzyna Mazur.
