Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Süss

2008 Rated NR 1hr 39m

Documentarian Felix Moeller profiles one of Nazi Germany's most notorious -- yet largely forgotten -- filmmakers in this penetrating biographical portrait of Veit Harlan, best known for directing the anti-Semitic 1940 propaganda film Jew Süss. Rare footage sheds light on Harlan's method and motivations, but interviews with his descendents reveal conflicted emotions about his tainted cinematic legacy.
