The Driver is Red

The Driver Is Red

He could see the hair on the back of his neck; he could almost hear his breath. Seated behind Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi architect of the Holocaust, in a crowded bus rolling through 1960 Buenos Aires, Mossad special agent Zvi Aharoni was confronted with the hair-curling “banality of evil.” His mission went far beyond the duty of tracking down a fleeing criminal: it was a battle against impunity and oblivion, an oath of respect towards the countless victims of the most hideous atrocity ever committed by humankind. A haunting animation clothed in a spy thriller suit, which unfolds a breathtaking quest for justice.
