“Hope Dies Last” is based on real events. I heard a report on radio 4 outlining Jösef’s life. I felt his story needed to be told. The nature of fear, cruelty, mental torture. But shown as part of a very mundane and ordinary action, that of a haircut. It’s a story we might not be familiar with. A story we should be familiar with.
