Los Angeles Premiere
Directed by Felix Moeller
German with English subtitles
1,200 feature films were made in Germany's Third Reich. Some 100 of these were blatant Nazi propaganda, crafted specifically to engender anti-Semitism among the masses. Seventy years later, more than 40 of these films remain under lock and key, banned from public viewing.
Director Felix Moeller (Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Süss) interviews renowned film historians and filmmakers who debate the power and potential danger of cinema when used for ideological purposes. Utilizing clips from these films he shows how controversial they still are, and how propaganda can retain its punch.
Q&A with Dr. Jan-Christopher Horak, Director of UCLA Film & Television Archive Goethe Institut, Los Angeles.
Sponsored by the Goethe Institut Los Angeles and the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany.
