Eureka: Hitler's Hollywood

#1 Post by Finch » Thu Aug 30, 2018 11:04 am

HITLER’S HOLLYWOOD, the story of one of the most important and most dramatic periods in the history of German cinema, will be released in a Dual Format edition (which also includes the 2014 documentary FROM CALIGARI TO HITLER) on 5 November 2018. Available to PRE-ORDER now http://po.st/mC5VNP

Nazi-cinema was a state-controlled industry, subject to rigid political and cultural censorship. At the same time, it aspired to be “Great Cinema”; it viewed itself as an ideological and aesthetic alternative to Hollywood. A German dream factory.

Rüdiger Suchsland’s HITLER’S HOLLYWOOD takes a closer look at the roughly 1000 feature films made in Germany between 1933-1945, examining how stereotypes of the “enemy” and values of love and hate managed to be planted, into the heads of the German people, through the cinema screens.

DUAL FORMAT SPECIAL FEATURES:
Option of the original German language version with optional English subtitles OR with English language narration by Udo Kier | From Caligari to Hitler: German Cinema in the Age of the Masses – Director Rüdiger Suchsland’s 2014 documentary on the social and cultural impact of German Cinema during the Weimar Republic (1918-1933)
