Hitler's Hollywood

  • Friday, 24 Jan 20 at 10:00 AM
This fascinating film from Germany – presented as part of the Fokus Film Festival – takes a closer look at the roughly 1,000 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 head of the German people, through the cinema screens.

Filmmaker Rüdiger Suchsland suggests that the Third Reich was essentially an immersive movie starring the German nation, produced and directed by Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels. Hitler's Hollywood collages key films from the more than 1,000 features the Nazis produced from 1933-1945: musicals, melodramas, romances, costume dramas, war films and when the real war got tough, insanely lavish, over-the-top fantasies. The German people were portrayed as happy and sporty with lives of exaggerated cheerfulness or, conversely, full of morbid yearning for a death that would serve the Fatherland. What convinces masses are not facts, not even invented facts, but only the consistency of the illusion. It's a frightening insight that could just as easily apply to the political landscape today.
