In 1986 when Austrian activists were protesting against Kurt Waldheim, filmmaker Ruth Beckermann was both protester and reporter. 30 years later, Beckermann uses her footage, as well as contemporaneous news archives, to chronicle Waldheims run for the Presidency of Austria amidst allegations of involvement in Nazi atrocities during WWII. Raises compelling questions about collective complicity, memory, and historical responsibility.
