Fuhrer Cult and Megalomania

Loading...
Even today it is possible to see signs in Nuremberg of the megalomaniac proportions that the system was to assume. In such areas, the individual was worthless and nothing more than a minute ornament. According to experts, this state and party rally architecture was also a symbol of Hitler's determination to achieve world domination. Rare footage of the construction work was used for this documentary. A previously unknown amateur film even shows the land in color in 1936.

Using footage from the actual Eichmann trial and weaving a narrative that spans three countries, von Trotta beautifully turns the often invisible passion for thought into dramatic cinema.
