Hitlers Hollywood. Das deutsche Kino im Zeitalter der Propaganda 1933 - 1945

Documentary Film, DE 2017, 105 min, OmeU

More than 1000 feature films were produced in Germany in the years between 1933 and 1945. For the 100th birthday of Ufa, Hitlers Hollywood tells for the first time of the dark period in German film history and the ambivalent side of Nazi propaganda films. How does propaganda work? How is it connected to the illusion machine, cinema? Is everything simply a lie or are there hidden truths?
