Fascist-flavoured cinema

OUT NOW! Unmissable documentary VERBOTENE FILME looks at the films favoured by Nazi propagandist Josef Goebbels.

Verbotene Filme hits Berlin cinemas on March 6.

Like Adolf Hitler, Propaganda Minister Goebbels was a film fan, dedicated to exploiting cinema’s potential to broadcast, obviously and less so, the tenets of National Socialism to billions of Third Reich cinemagoers. Amazing, really, that a film on whether and under which circumstances German democracy can cope with the general release of those 40-plus films (including Jud Süß, photo) could be outstanding. Until now. With far-right internet postings on the increase, Moeller’s film explores a newly explosive topic from an artistic (yes), political and moral standpoint. Don’t miss.

Verbotene Filme | Directed by Felix Moeller (Germany 2014) documentary. Starts March 6
