The voice stops talking. The people next to Saul start doing
something. Next to Saul, a MAN puts two fingers on the
highest button of his messy shirt and hesitates. Saul looks
at the man, who finally undoes his shirt. Saul leans and
picks up the man’s clothes on the ground. He gathers more of
the clothes lying on the ground and puts them on the side.
Shooting Draft April 25, 2014
A MAN in a jacket with a painted red X over it is helping an
ELDERLY WOMAN to remove pins from a shawl. Next to them,
other people go on undressing. Naked women pass him by and
pudently hide in a corner.
Reassuring voices speaking in different languages can be
heard, but only fragments make their way to him: “hot meal”
and “hurry up”.
MAN IN THE CROWD (O.S.)
You have to remember the number.
Saul goes to a corner in the corridor and stands still. He is
soon joined by other MEN IN WHITE SHIRTS. They don’t talk.
Next to him, naked people walk further down. Saul’s face is
blank as we catch a glimpse at the huge crowd passing him
by. Voices rise, questions, in various languages, then fade
The last naked people, agitated, are being pushed into the
other hall by men in uniform.
The sound of a heavy door closing.
The men in uniform leave.
Saul and the other men in white shirts collect the clothes
hanging on the racks and throw them on the ground. Cries
A bald MAN comes near Saul still taking the clothes out of
the racks. The bald man speaks in a low voice to the man next
to Saul, a strong man in his thirties, LANDESMAN. The bald
man looks at Saul.
Saul leaves with Landesman. They enter a smaller corridor.
The cries are louder. Landesman opens a door on the right.
They go inside. There await several other MEN IN WHITE SHIRT,
faces turned to the ground.
