The Nazi regime produced over 1,200 feature films, mostly political propaganda, a handful of which were crafted specifically to engender anti-Semitism among the masses. Of these hideous artifacts, 40 remain banned from public viewing to this day for their incendiary content. In Forbidden Films, director Felix Moeller brings us into the vaulted, explosive-resistant compound where the reels are kept and then interviews renowned film historians and filmmakers who debate the importance of these “Nazi movies of the poison cabinet:” are they worth keeping? Do we need to show them? How do we approach this dark legacy? A Zeitgeist Films release.
Director Felix Moeller in person for Q&A at both screenings!
